Vanilla Protein Cake

I have a problem.

A sweet tooth problem.

My weakness has ALWAYS been candy, cakes, cookies, chocolate.  If it contains sugar, I am eating it.  And most likely, all of it.

Not a good obsession when I am trying to shake off the body fat.

What’s a girl to do?

Well… considering I am trying to up my protein intake each day I decided to pair my sweet addiction with my protein needs and create some delicious protein treats!

Ladies and Gents, I bring to you:

Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe mug OR bowl.

I always choose a bowl because the cake grows. Mugs are far too tiny unless you’ve for one of those gigantic soup mugs.

Pop in the microwave for 1 minute. (Watch closely).

Slide the cake right out onto a plate and eat as is OR whip together a little frosting using Greek yogurt, sugar free pudding mix (I used cheesecake flavor) and a little milk for consistency.
