Rich Chocolate Protein Cupcake
Submitted by: PHILLYGIRL2012
This is a healthier version of a chocolaty cupcake made with protein powder for additional protein hit.
Number of Servings: 12
- 1 cup whole-grain oat flour
(I ground in a blender to make this)
(use 1.5 cups if not using protein powder)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (1 cup if not using chocolate protein powder)
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
(I used 1cup 2%milk + 1tbs lemon juice. Let stand 5 minutes)
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 large egg whites
1.5 cups unpacked brown sugar (either light or dark. I used a mix of both.)
1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt, sweetened
(I used Greek 2% plain which adds to the fat count
- Guess you could say the cupcakes baked up nicely! And for another new--peanut butter frosting--delish!
I used this product ,to add more protein, to the frosting mixture. It works really well. BH daughter likes to add this to plain yogurt--2 Tbsp. to 1 Tbsp. water, stir and you have it! Brown headed girl enjoyed her birthday treat!
