Tasty Tuesday – Chocolate Mocha Protein Breakfast Mug Cake

If you’re in the habit of swinging by Starbucks for a morning pick me up, you know how tempting that glass case of treats can be!  Instead of indulging in extra calories, added sugar, and loads of carbs, make the switch to this tasty morning treat!!

You could easily use decaf coffee if you’re wanting a post dinner treat (without the caffeine) or sub in unsweetened almond milk instead of coffee for the kiddos to enjoy a mug cake as well!  Use my favorite dairy free protein powder to make this a dairy free friendly option as well!

Happy “baking”!
