Protein Mug Cake Mix

NZ Protein's Mug Cake Mix is a delicious microwavable cake with a huge 33 grams of protein per serve. Think mud cake - but made in a mug, and with gains.

We've formulated our recipe to be ridiculously easy as it just needs water and microwaving for less than a minute!

It makes for a great high protein treat and satisfies sweet tooth cravings. Because it's low in sugars and fat you don't even have to feel bad about eating cake.

The protein used is hydrolysed collagen from beef. Collagen is the connective tissue that accounts for up to 30% of proteins in our body.

Collagen is the most important structural protein in our body and the primary protein in connective tissue such as bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

Collagen makes up 90% of connective tissue, 90% organic bone mass, and 70% of our skin and has unique functional properties over other proteins such as whey and casein.

This product does have some carbohydrates from flour. We tried to remove the carbs but the product didn't work, so there are carbs but the sugars are low.

This is the best protein dessert I've ever had.

This is BY FAR the best mug cake I have ever had. And I'm not just talking protein mug cakes, I mean ALL mug cakes. As soon as I took one bite, my skin cleared, birds outside started singing sweetly, my gpa went up three points, and my third eye opened.

For real though, this is rich and the texture is very smooth - unlike the usual protein baking which has a weird chewy texture. This is great, 100% would recommend. Big ups to the cows
