  • 1 serving (27g) Swerve Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 2/3 scoop (21g) PEScience Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 3/8 C (90g) Canned Pumpkin
  • 1 dash Pumpkin Pie Spice optional


  1. Mix the cake mix and protein powder in a mug or small bowl before adding the pumpkin and stirring well. The cake batter should be fairly thick. A rubber spatula works great to spread it evenly in the bottom of the mug. (Optional: Add a dash of pumpkin pie spice on top before microwaving.)

  2. Microwave for 75-90 seconds or until the center is solid. (The size of your mug/bowl will influence cook time. It's always better to undercook mug cakes than overcook when they don't contain food safety concerns like eggs.)

  3. Top with fat free whipped cream or a scoop of lower calories ice cream.
