Chocolate Chip Red Velvet Mug Cake

Mug cakes made with protein powder make the perfect sweet snack or small meal when something sweet just sounds good. Try this the next time it’s late and you don’t know what to make for dinner. Top it with low sugar vanilla Greek yogurt, like Dannon Triple Zero, for an even more filling meal.
