5 Minute Salted Caramel Mug Cake

5 Minute Salted Caramel Mug Cake

 It's no secret - we love a sweet treat! But what happens if you want to satisfy a craving without having a whole batch of brownies laying around the house to tempt you? We have the perfect solution! This single serve mug cake can be whipped up in five minutes, and is made of a healthy blend of protein and natural ingredients. Absolute life saver! 


  • 2.5 tbsp plain GF flour
  • 1.5 tbsp Tropeaka Lean Protein Salted Caramel
  • 1/2 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup oat milk (or your favourite non-dairy option)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (can sub for 1 tbsp nut butter for oil-free)
  • A sprinkle of vegan choc chips (optional)


  • Add the flour, protein, cacao and baking powder into a bowl (or directly into your mug if it’s big enough). Mix well.
  • Add in the milk, maple syrup and oil and mix until smooth.
  • Transfer into a mug and top with chocolate chips.
  • Microwave for 1m 30s until risen and cooked through. Note: cooking time can be between 1-2min depending on your microwave.
  • Allow to cool slightly before enjoying!

The best thing about this mug cake is you can swap out any flavour of Tropeaka's lean protein, or use your favourite plant based protein powder. This may affect the macros below - but it will still be a delicious single serve treat!
