Recently The Protein Works got in touch with me and said hey, try some of our products they’re chocolatey, and who was I to resist?
I’ll be honest I’m always suss about Protein Powders and things and very rarely buy them, when I do it’s vanilla and I use it in cooking. The Protein Works sent me the Millionaires Shortbread flavour of their Whey Protein 80 and holy shiz balls its beautiful. I’ve been drinking it with just some almond milk. It comes in a TONNE of flavours too, from Apple Cinnamon Swirl to White Chocolate Blondie.
I took a look around the market and the reviews from independent reviewers, this guy loves the product too (even if he punches cats), and this guy too. This wins on flavour, selections, and is low in sugar too. There’s all kinds of details on the site about the technicalities of the whey protein if you’re in to all that stuff.
They also sent me some amazing Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Luxe in Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavour. I love peanut butter. I love Chocolate Fudge Brownies. What’s a girl to do with this? Eat it. With a spoon. Otherwise it’s pretty epic in protein shakes and for the recipe I’m gonna give you right below.
I know! I am getting super generous now, here’s a super easy mug cake which is a little bit indulgent (183 calories) but great for after a workout with only 8g of fat, 4g of carbs and a good whack of 27g of protein. I made it with the ingredients provided for me and seriously recommend you do too.
For a Super Chocolate Heaven Protein Mug Cake You need:
A Mug & a Microwave
1 Scoop of Millionaires Shortbread Whey 80 Protein Powder
1 tbsp of Peanut Butter Luxe
1/4 tsp of baking powder
Pinch of Salt (I’m a fan of Kosher salt or Rock Salt)
1 fresh egg white
1/4 mug of Almond Milk (or standard milk if you like)
Add the powder, milk, baking powder, salt and egg white together and mix in the mug until smooth, add the peanut butter and get as smooth as you can.
I ended up with a fluffy cake with a little bit of wet sauce on the top, it was beautiful! Scoff away. It’s also really filling and will keep you going for ages! As I was taking pictures I noticed the sign hanging at the end of our kitchen.
While The Protein Works may have given me some lovely gifts it doesn’t mean I would change my opinion on the product. I always give an honest account of anything I try and tell you all the truth! I wouldn’t share anything that I didn’t think readers would be interested in. Let me know what you think of the recipe, or the products in the comments
