Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for One

Are you ready to try the most decadent cake you’ll ever taste?


Creamy peanut butter, dark chocolate, and fudgy cake.

Oh, and it’s made in a mug in less than two minutes.

And yields a decadent, rich cake with less than 200 calories.

Why yes, that is including the peanut butter!

Bring on the cake!


With 16 grams of protein and only 18g carbs, this cake literally cannot be beat. Seriously, feel free to top it with as much peanut butter and even ice cream as you like because you’re basically doing yourself a service by eating it! 😉

The perfect cool down snack, quick and easy dessert, or treat after a long day, this mug cake is easy to make, delicious, and, as mentioned before, has unbelievable macros.

Guys, I’m not joking when I tell you I finished mine in less than the time it took me to make it. And had to work really hard not to make a second one!


But seriously, even two of these mug cakes contain less calories and a lot less fat and sugar than a classic slice of chocolate cake. So a second really wouldn’t be that bad… Right? 😉

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for One

  • 1 scoop (15g) soy protein powder (or other protein powder of choice**)
  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tbs flax seed meal
  • 1/4 c almond milk
  • 1 tbs dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs chocolate chips (optional)

Add protein powder, coconut sugar, baking powder, flax seeds, and cocoa powder to a small bowl and stir until combined. Add peanut butter and vanilla extract. Slowly stir in the almond milk until fully combined. If desired, melt chocolate chips in the microwave on 15 second increments, then stir into the batter. Grease a large mug and pour in the batter. Microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds to 45 seconds, depending on your microwave. Drizzle with peanut butter and top with dairy free ice cream. Enjoy!

Nutrition information does not include optional chocolate chips. If included, nutrition info reads as follows: 240 calories, 11g fat, 27g carbs, 16g protein.

You can also try using plain flour, but the macros will vary. I’ve yet to test using flour, so the texture may also vary slightly.
