perfect, single serving brownie, mug cake to help curve that sweet teeth craving and help you get your protein in!
Servings 1 person
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 1 min


  • mug or ramiken


  • 3 tbsp grounded oats I used old fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 scoop protein the one I use is listed in the notes
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp hershey cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp water


  • take your oats and grind them up in a food processor first
  • then add the oats and all other ingredients to your mug or ramiken and mix together until combined (I mix mine with just a rubber spatula)
  • put in microwave for 55 seconds
  • if its still a little too runny/gooey for your taste, cook again for 10 seconds until desired consistency is reached. (although I don't recommend longer than 1 minute and 15 seconds as it will end up drying it out)
  • Enjoy!


  • I used THIS protein, I have found it to be one of the best ones for baking.  The flavor and texture are really good, not that chalky weird after taste you get from some proteins!
  • Microwave for at least 45 seconds, if you like it a little gooey and chocolatey.  I found my magic time to be 65 seconds personally.  Add 10 minute increments if you need yours done a little more.  Just beware that it could potentially dry it out.
  • I had made 3 at once and ended up sticking the other 2 in the fridge and ate them the next day, they still tasted good refrigerated!
