Protein Mug Cake & A GIVEAWAY!!

by Destini on July 15, 2013

This post was meant for Friday, however my site is currently changing hosting providers and I had some technical difficulties. So the site was up and down and not posting. ACK. It appears to be all up and running again!! Thank goodness!!

Now that is all behind us(I hope), let’s talk about some fitness. I have continued doing Revolt Fitness, but also have upped my gym time. I love Revolt Fitness and even after my 12 weeks, I will continue to use it. That being said, I have now started to go to the gym regularly again. I always went before, but I have definitely logged in way more hours as of late. Working out with the hubby makes me bring up my game! My 30th birthday is looming right around the corner (3.5 weeks) and I have this determination to be at my best for it. Whatever motivates you, run with it!

Recently I introduced a protein mug cake recipe to the hubby, since then……. HE IS ALWAYS REQUESTING IT! It has taken many versions and many freak outs…..but I think I might just have figured it out. I also had some help with some really great protein. Those of you that have read my blog and followed my strife with trying to find a happy medium with the hubbys allergies know that I can’t just go and use any protein in his diet. It has to be lactose free & gluten free. The poor man can’t really have much that comes out of a package anymore. And let’s all be honest, that isn’t a bad thing, just more work for me :) So when North Coasts Naturals contacted me to try out some of their products, I was more than ready to give these a try. We’ve tried several natural proteins and have found some pretty good ones, but this one tops the cake for the hubby. He LOVES it! He says it breaks down perfectly in his blender cup, no chalky taste and has no tummy reactions from it.  YAY!! Oh and I forgot to mention that it’s a Canadian company!!!! Is it possible to love them anymore?

Ingredients: Yields 1

  • one scoop of North Coasts Natural Chocolate protein (or any chocolate protein)
  • 1/2T coconut flour
  • 1/4c almond milk(or any desired milk)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1T cooca powder
  • 1 packet of stevia (or liquid drops)
  • 1t baking powder

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a kitchen oil sprayed mug, cover and microwave for 35-40 seconds(watch this as it may be mushy or to dry).  Flip upside down and put it on a plate.

Toppings:You can honestly just go crazy here, but this is what my husband recommends.

  • 1T almond chocolate butter (I heat this up for 25seconds and spread it on the cake like icing)
  • pb2 maple sauce (1t pb2, 1tsp almond milk, 1/4t pure maple syrup)
  • assorted fruit

Oh it’s quite yummy and you would NEVER know that it was pretty guilt free. BONUS!!

WHOOPS!! I didn’t realize that I photographed the french side and not english. But you guys get the idea right? LOL

Remember how I said it was not possible to love North Coast Naturals anymore than I already do? Well guess what…they want you to love them just as much!! I will be giving away not one, but two tubs of protein. You pick Chocolate or Vanilla(Oh and I may just have ANOTHER recipe with the vanilla, this will just get you ready). This will run from Today, July 15th to July 23rd at midnight CST. Only open to Canadian Addresses.

 
a Rafflecopter giveaway

 

I am off to do my Revolt Fitness program for today! Cardio baby!!

Oh another little true story….I run in the Color me Rad 5k Saturday morning and I haven’t done a LICK of running in a couple months. I better get going on that…

Have a great evening :)

I’d like to try it because I love the NCN Greens powder, so their protein must be awesome too! I use protein powder daily after my workouts and I only use natural products :)

I LOVE everything I’ve tried by NCN. I have the chocolate protein and use it to make some delicious protein bars.

i am eating to gain muscle and it’s hard for me to get my percentage of protein right – this would be a great supplementation

I clicked on this not for the contest, but for the chocolate cake! I’ve never tried protein powder, but this might change my mind…..

A giveaway open to Canadians? Can it be? Haha
I’d love to win NCN protein powder–it’s always so hard to find flavoured protein powders that aren’t artificially sweetened.

I know right! Only us Canadian folks in this giveaway :)

My boyfriend is a fitness-buff and he is always looking for ways to take his protein differently. He has recently taken to making protein smoothies. This would be AMAZING to do for him!

I’m also on the lookout for a protein powder that won’t wreak havoc on my digestive system!

Ann July 18, 2013 at 12:51 am

It sounds pretty good! I’ve been trying to up my protein intake

I’m always looking to try new protein powders. I like to experiment with different types in baking recipes and protein “ice creams.” Thanks for the giveaway!

I’d like to try this because I am CONSTANTLY in search of good protein powders. Some taste awful, and the good-tasting ones always seem to have bad stuff in them.

This looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it out.. I also hope to try out that protein because every kind my brother has gotten taste HORRIBLE!! D:

Yay! A contest for Canadians by a Canadian and the prize is … made by a Canadian company. I love this!!! :D

I am embarking on a health and wellness journey this summer and am always looking for recipe ideas and new ways to add healthy proteins to my diet, especially after a workout! Would really love to try this product.

I haven’t tried many protein powders and would love to try it!

Let me tell you that I have probably dried a dozen “clean” protein/mug cake recipes in the past month. All of them were ehh…nothing to rave about. But this recipe WAS SO GOOD!!!! I had to transfer the contents to a bowl and microwave for about 3 minutes, but it came out perfect! I really thought that I was eating regular chocolate cake. I didn’t use the protein powder that you recommended because I had a different brand on hand, and it still worked out well. Thanks for such a good recipe! :)

Destini December 11, 2013 at 8:44 am

Oh I am so glad you loved it! I have made this so many times. It took a bunch of trial and errors(more errors than successes), but I was left with this and pretty proud of it :)
