After my Quest Protein Review over on YouTube video the other day, I ended the video asking people to comment anything they wanted to see made with it.

Well to my delight, many people commented wonderful ideas, so I decided to quickly get to it and deliver!!

And of course, someone asked for something yummy that was mint chocolate flavored!

So I present to you, a Mint Chocolate Mugcake. Why? Because I love my mugcakes. And they are super easy. Mmmmm

(correction since posting this and making this photo above: it is not 50 calories, it is 85!)

Who doesn’t want a cake in under 100 CALORIES?! Oh and a whopping14 grams of protein! And if you make this recipe for one instead of two?! NO WORRIES. Because it is still under 200 calories and then you’re getting 28 grams of protein!

Notes
Quest Protein is made up of both whey and casein, which prevents the typical dryness in baking with protein powder. If you use only whey protein from another brand, be aware it may not result in the same moistness or flavor. It is also pretty sweet, so if you are using a less sweet protein, you may need to add a little more sweetener.
