Contest Prep, Recipes

Chocolate Protein Cupcakes

 I love that these “cupcakes” still fit in my macros but taste like a sweet treat!  it really helps curb the cravings and gives me something to look forward to. 

one thing prep is teaching me is how to get creative with my foods. I’ve really been enjoying trying new recipes and seeing what creation I can come up with using limited ingredients. all I can say is, thank god for cinnamon!

I made chocolate protein cupcakes for post workout last night. this is the second time I’ve tried making these and I’m still tweaking the recipe but it can only get better!  1 serving is 4 cupcakes so it’s also a great low cal/low carb treat if you split them up into four little servings instead of one big one. the only problem I run into is I eat them before my workout because they just taste so good! so I have to learn to resist or just wait to make them until I get home. oh well, I managed to save only one for my post workout yesterday but I have no regrets. 

  
Chocolate Protein Cupcakes

1 serving: 4 cakes = 318 calories 

1 small frozen banana

1 whole egg and 1 egg white

1 scoop of chocolate protein powder

1/4 tsp baking powder

a lot of cinnamon

sprinkle of salt

splash of almond milk

bake on 350F for 15 minutes

additional options: chocolate chips, cocoa powder, different flavored protein, peanut butter, nuts or anything else you may enjoy!

  

these turned out a little spongy so still playing around with that but over all deliciousness!  add a spread of peanut butter on top and die happily.
