Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake
In a small microwavable bowl or mug, add mashed sweet potato and egg and mix until thoroughly combined, making sure no clumps remain. Add tahini and stir to combine. Add in protein powder and cacao powder and stir until everything is incorporated. Sprinkle with a few chocolate chips if using.
Microwave for 1:45 until cooked through and chocolate chips are slightly melted. Sprinkle with optional topping and enjoy!
