Birthday Funfetti Protein Mugcake

It was my husband's birthday this past week. I wanted to treat him with cake but we are prepping for a beach vacation so I knew he would want something he did not have to feel guilt about eating. Besides, I know that I would eat 75% of whatever treat I making because he is not a "sweet eater"... whatever that is! And I have a photo shoot on the beach while we are gone, so I have to be on my best behavior before we leave.

So I racked my brain and came up with this Funfetti Protein Mugcake recipe! I think it was fun and did the trick! He laughed, I ate most of it. We were all happy.

Birthday Funfetti Protein Mugcake

Serves 1

1.00 egg, Large (You could sub 3 egg whites and save a few calories too!)
0.25 tsp, Baking Powder
1.00 tbsp, Rainbow Sprinkles, divided
0.20 box, Sugar Free, Fat Free, Cheesecake Instant Pudding (Dry Mix)
2.00 tbsp, Milk - Reduced fat, 2% milkfat
1.00 scoop, Vanilla Milkshake Whey Protein (I used Premiere Protein which is 180 cals and 30 g protein per scoop)

Grease a small microwave safe ramekin, bowl, or mug with nonstick spray. Mix together the dry ingredients (save half your sprinkles for later). then incorporate the dry ingredients until mixed. Microwave on high approximately 1 minute or until mostly cooked through. Enjoy!
