Why bother with a lengthy intro? This apple pie mug cake has pie and cake in the title, and you only need four ingredients. What more can be said?

I will add, at least, that the entire recipe is under 300 calories and has 25 grams of protein. If you dig apple pie and simple recipes with tons of protein, you’re in for quite a treat.

Apple Pie Mug Cake Ingredients

As the title says, you’ll only need four ingredients for this mug cake. I found everything except the protein powder at Walmart. If you’re wondering where to find the quick bread mix, you can click here to use Pillsbury’s find a store function for that product (I’ve even got it preloaded for ya).

So what can you do if you can’t find the quick bread mix in store near you? Go check out my Caramel Apple Mug Cake, of course. In the caramel apple recipe, I shared the following graphic about low calorie ice cream:

I’m not throwing shade at Halo Top or Eat Enlightened. I’m just saying, there are tons of options for lower calorie ice cream these days. My recommendation for this apple pie mug cake is far and away the Edy’s slow churned vanilla bean. Once you try it, you’ll never want to go back to another ice cream. Seriously, it’s s’scrumptious.

All right, I think that’s about all you need to know for the ingredients. It’s a super simple recipe, as usual. Enjoy!
