I love when kitchen experiments workout.. and when you’re trying to making healthy versions of classic treats, it often doesn’t. But these turned out wonderfully! The texture is perfect, flavor delicious, and if you eat the whole batch.. you don’t have to feel guilty
Fitness Luscious Lemon Cupcakes
Makes 4 large Cupcakes
1/4 c plain non-fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 c 0-cal Sugar Substitute (I used Stevia in the Raw)
1/4 c Egg Whites
3 tbsp Sugar-Free Lemon Syrup OR Lemon Juice (I just didn’t have the fresh version on hand)
2 scoops Cake Batter or Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Mix together Yogurt, Egg Whites, Sugar-substitute and Lemon. In a separate bowl mix Protein Powder and Baking Powder. Combine wet & dry ingredients, then stir in Oil. Pour into muffin tins coated with cooking spray. Bake for 25 min. or until golden brown.
Perhaps make even more delicious, and cupcake like, with Fitness Frosting (feel free to switch out the Protein Powder flavor to make other fun combinations!).
