Banana Protein Mug Cake With Spoon | Pulsin Recipe | Rice Protein



  • 1/2 a medium super ripe banana (approx. 75g)
  • 15g (2 tbsp) Pulsin Unflavoured Rice Protein
  • 15g (2 tbsp) gluten free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder or pure vanilla extract

  • 1.2 tbsp smooth cashew butter
  • 5 drops liquid stevia or 1 tsp powdered stevia erylite



Mash banana until almost smooth. Mix with almond milk. If you're finding it hard to create a smooth mix just blend with a hand blender in a jug. Add the rest of ingredients to the wet mixture.


Lightly grease a mug or deep cup or ramekin with about 1/4 of a tsp of coconut oil.


Pour the batter into the mug and cook in the microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. If it starts rising up over the mug just stop the microwave for a second and restart...keep a close eye on it! You'll know to use a deeper dish the next time.


Mix together cashew butter and stevia for the dairy-free option in a small ramekin until perfectly smooth.


Tip the mug cake out onto a plate and top with icing. Alternative you can pour the icing in on top of the cake and eat out of the dish. BE CAREFUL not to burn your mouth!
