Protein Mug Brownie~YUMMO ;)




1 scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder
1 teaspoon unsweetened European Cocoa
2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seed
1/4 C lowfat cottage cheese
1/4 C Egg Whites
1/3 C 30 cal/cup Almond Milk
Dash Cinnamon and Vanilla

     Spray Mug with Pam and add protein powder, cocoa, flax seed, cottage cheese, egg whites, cinnamon and vanilla ( to taste)~stir and microwave for 2 mintues.  When ready to eat, pour a 1/3 C of Almond Milk in mug and enjoy your Brownie with Milk !!!  Its practically like dipping your Oreos in Milk ...  ;) Enjoy this wonderful treat for 275 calories, 37 gms protein and 7 carbs~ not too shabby !!! When I started making this, I quickly realized that I loved them so much and wanted one every morning, so I had the idea to make FOUR at a time, ... and why not!?  They store easily in the frig during the week and when they are ready to eat I pull them out one at a time and pour my milk over the top and with in minutes the milk has soaked in and its time to chow down !!! Anything I can do to be a little extra organized and save a few minutes, especially in the morning, I will do !!!  Organization is the key to success ~ now go forth and organize !!!  ;)

  1. I really like this recipe and it's such a great break from the norm at our house, can't wait to try it! Can I buy European cocoa at Dillons? -angela mcfadden

  2. Angela I did a little further investigating today and not sure if you can get the European Dutch processed cocoa at Dillons or not, what I have on hand is the Hersheys brand of Special Dark unsweetened cocoa and not sure if they carry it all year round. I got mine from a bulk order directly from Hersheys. HOWEVER, that being said, I did discover another brand that is suppose to be the best called Callebaut Baking Cocoa Powder. I ordered it from Amazon today and it is 24.99 for 2.2 pounds and 6.95 shipping. There were several consumer posts about this being the best on the market after blind taste test studies. I will have to try my hand at making a hot cocoa with Almond milk, cinnamon and vanilla and compare the two and report back !!! Also, Im happy to share some of my chocolate when it comes in if you would like to try some !!! Thanks for your comment~ In good health~paige ;)
