A pretty amazing Protein Strawberry Crunch Cake for a healthy single serving dessert! This strawberry protein mug cake has a no bake strawberry crunch crumble topping and is low carb, gluten free and has no added sugar!

Ingredients for Single Serve Protein Strawberry Crunch Cake

This single serve protein strawberry crunch cake is made with a few simple and healthy ingredients, and has no flour, butter or oil and no sugar either! 

  • Strawberries
  • Vanilla Protein Powder for healthy, whey protein protein mug cake that’s also sugar free. I used Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake whey-caesin protein powder for this mug cake.
  • Unflavored Protein Powder for just some extra protein. I used a whey-caesin blend from Quest Nutrition.
  • Coconut Flour for a low carb protein mug cake
  • Egg Whites for extra protein
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Baking Powder
  • Sugar free Maple Syrup; I use the sugar free monk fruit maple syrup from Lakanto (code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount)
  • Vanilla Extract

For the true no bake strawberry crunch topping part:

  • Freeze-dried Strawberries
  • Cornflakes Cereal
  • Melted Butter

If you need to add more sweetness, Stevia Powder or Zero Calorie Sugar Substitute; I use Lakanto, to keep strawberry mug cake sugar free; (code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here too)
