If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know by now that we love a quirky appreciation day! Today is National Cupcake Day and we just couldn't resist sharing three of our favourite, protein-packed cupcake recipes so that you guys can join in on the festivities the healthy way… who said you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
Carrot and Walnut Cupcakes
You can't go wrong with a classic carrot and walnut cake! These cute little cupcakes are really easy to make and come out super light, fluffy and not to mention moist. They're perfect for an afternoon treat with a cup of tea, and taste incredible eaten warm from the oven or topped with sticky icing if you can manage to wait that long before tucking in! Find the recipe, here.
Pic’s PB Cupcakes
Our friends at Pic's Peanut Butter have created this incredible, healthy cupcake recipe using Neat Nutrition chocolate protein powder and their incredible nut butter! Unlike your usual cupcake recipe, this one is low in carbohydrates and contains a great balance of protein and healthy fats, making them the perfect sweet treat to enjoy with a cup of tea. Find the recipe, here.
Molten Chocolate Mugcake
Okay, so we know this one technically isn’t a cupcake, but sometimes you just don’t have time to whip up a batch of cupcakes after a busy day at work! If you’re anything like us, you can’t be trusted around a whole tray of sweet treats either, so this recipe will be perfect for keeping your portion control in check whilst still satisfying that chocolate cupcake craving.
