  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp bakeable sweetener you can omit if using sweetend protein powder
  • 5 g dark cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 scoop protein powder 32g, chocolate, vanilla or your chioce
  • 1/2 tbsp chocolate chips optional


  • Add all ingredients in a wide mug or ramekin and mix well until you have a semi-thick consistency (you don't want it to think, so add the almond milk last and slowly)
  • Microwave for 1 minute - you might want to test your microwave settings the first time and do this in 30 second increments so as to avoid any overflow!
  • Enjoy as is or with a drizzle of peanut butter or even some cooling whipped coconut cream 😋


If you want to make this a vegan option you can omit the egg whites and just add more milk to achieve desired consistency. 
You can use a plant-based protein powder to  also make this vegan. If your protein powder contains sweetener you may decide not to add more sweetener.
