Truth be told, I’m not much of a baker (huge surprise). I do enjoy a cupcake or two, but I don’t really enjoy bleached white flour and starch. As its been said, “Fat lasts longer than flavor”. It can be a delicate balance at times. You need to find that balance between eating something thats healthy and eating something that is overly indulgent (most likely full of sugars). I don’t see anything wrong with thinking outside the box and going with a creative option.
These cupcakes may not be the same consistency as a normal cupcake, but they do mimic the size, shape, and eating experience. You can even frost or garnish them if you like. Using the protein that I used, They come out to around 22-23 grams of protein a piece. I used bodybuilding.com‘s 100% casein powder (cinnamon bun flavor) because I’m using these as a snack before bed. You could use any type of powder depending on what your goals, allergies, and diet looks like. The amount of milk (I used an almond/coconut blend) may differ slightly depending on the type of protein you use. You will also need a nut butter of some kind (I used almond).
-1&2/3-2 cups milk
-1 tbsp nut butter
