  • 1 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Double Acting)
  • 1 slice cooked Bacon (Cured, Pan-Fried, Cooked)
  • 1 slice (1 oz) Cheddar Cheese


  1. Place cream cheese in a microwave safe mug.  Heat for 10-15 seconds (enough to warm the cream cheese but not to fully melt it).
  2. Add the egg and whisk it with the cream cheese.
  3. Add the whey protein powder (use a protein powder that has 1g NC or less per serving, one serving is about 1 oz) and baking powder; whisk to combine. Season with a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Tear the cooked bacon into small pieces and cut the cheese into small pieces.  Add them to the mixture, mixing to combine.  Heat the mug in the microwave for 1 min (microwave times vary so you may need to increase the time by 10-20 seconds if it does not cook through with 1 minute.)  Remove muffin by turning over onto a plate.  Run a knife around the inside of the mug to more easily release it.
