¼ cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons granulated sugar 

1 scoop Chocolate Collagen Peptides

2 teaspoons Beyond Brew

¼ teaspoon baking powder

⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ cup + 1 tablespoon milk

2 ½ tablespoons safflower or canola oil


Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, Chocolate Collagen Peptides, Beyond Brew, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Combine milk and oil in a small bowl and then add to dry ingredients. Whisk thoroughly, and when well combined, pour into a regular-sized coffee mug (usually about 8 to 10 oz). 

Set the cup on a plate in the microwave in case of overflow and microwave for 70 seconds. Carefully check the level of doneness by sticking a butter knife down through the middle of the mug. Pull out the knife, and if it’s still too gooey, add it back to the microwave for 15-20 seconds.

The cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of the mug you are using, as well as the power capacity of your microwave. Enjoy!
