Double Chocolate Casein Mug Cake topped with Melted Peanut Butter & Chocolate Casein Frosting

Keep in mind that this cake was made for a hungry, chocolate-crazed bulking girl!! ;-)

This is a perfect night time treat! Casein is a slow digesting protein which is perfect to have before you enter a fasted 6-8 hour state while sleeping. It helps with muscle repair and growth. Also, this cake is full of healthy fats! Don't fear the fat! You gotta eat it to lose it! ;-)

For the Cake:
1/4 scoop chocolate casein protein (I used ON chocolate cake batter)
1 tsp truvia
1/4 cup almond meal/flour
1.5 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
1/4 egg whites
1 tsp coconut oil
splash of unsweetened almond milk

For the Topping:
1 heaping tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter, melted
1/2 scoop chocolate casein protein
1/4 cup almond milk(approximate, may be less)

For the Cake:
Spray a coffee mug with non-stick cooking spray. Mix all the ingredients for the cake inside of the mug. Microwave for approx. 2 minutes. Be careful to not overcook the cake.

For the Topping:
While the cake is in the microwave: Mix approx. 1/4 cup (cold) almond milk slowly with 1/2 scoop casein protein powder until it becomes a "mousse" texture.

When Cake is finished cooking, flip the mug onto a plate to let the cake fall out. Top with melted PB and the casein frosting. Sprinkle with cocoa powder for garnish.
