Alfalfa powder mug cake

Food & Recipes door thijs

Mug cakes! The cutest and easiest breakfast you can make! Have you ever heard of them? Well, I only discovered them recently when I was looking for a new type of breakfast next to my Miyogis. First I tried a traditional one, but then I instantly wanted to try something special. All my posts this month are themed by the words 're-invent yourself'. And voila! This is my inventive mug cake: alfalfa powder mug cake :D

So we've seen a lot of green powders pass by such as wheatgrass and green tea powder. A while ago I got a big pot of alfalfa powder to try it. It is known as a superfood that has a lot of benefits that can enhance your healthy lifestyle.

Centuries ago, the Arabs used nutrient-rich alfalfa as food for their horses, because they claimed that it made the animals swift and strong.  They eventually became so convinced of its benefits to their own health that they named the grass "Al-Fal-Fa", which means "Father of Foods".

Sounds pretty awesome right? Well I really like it because it has this "green tea matcha" kind of flavour. And i just love matcha. So... Here we go!

What do you need?

-A mug

-1 whole egg

-1/2 Banana

-3 tbl spoons of muesli or oats

-1 tbl spoon of alfalfa powder

-1 tbl spoon of honey (or more, depends on your sweet tooth :D)


Squash the banana in your mug, add the whole egg, the oats/muesli and mix it well. While mixing, add the powder until there are no chunks left. Place the mug in the microwave for about 1- 2 minutes (check if it goes well! Every microwave is different). Take out your mug cake and reverse your mug on a plate so that it cools down and eventually will come off.

For the topping you need...

-2 tbl spoons of yoghurt

-1tbl spoon of vanilla protein powder

-1 tbl spoon of whey isolate crisps

-5 almonds

Mix the yoghurt together with the protein powder until there are no chunks in it. Pour it on top of the mug cake and sprinkle the crisps and almonds over it. Voila!! Enjoy your mug cake and make sure to share them with me on Instagram! You can find me as Fitgirltizi :)
