I had some blueberries I needed to use up and I couldn’t decide what I wanted to make at first. Then, I figured that I can never go wrong with making a mug cake. They are quick, easy, and most importantly delicious. So, the recipe became a chocolate chip blueberry mug cake.
As you have seen from almost all of my recipes, I have a slight addiction with chocolate. I pretty much add it to my recipes any chance I get. This time was no different. It might not sound good at first, but chocolate chips and blueberries go awesome together!
So, the cake has chocolate chips and blueberries inside. I also added a scoop of vanilla pea protein. If you don’t have pea protein or don’t like it, you can substitute it for casein. I love that both pea protein and casein give the cake a super moist and dense texture. No one likes dry cake!
Then, to finish it all off, I topped it with a vanilla protein icing, a drizzle of melted dark chocolate, and of course some more blueberries.
