A bit of protein added to your sweet treat never hurt anyone, right?! With all the birthdays we had in August, I spent a nice amount of time baking cakes & cupcakes and naturally I played around with adding NutriWhey.

I know this caught your attention, so what are you waiting for, go give this recipe a try!!

  • Scale
  • KFF Baking Flour Blend (Makes 3 Cups): 128g Brown Rice Flour, 128g Oat Flour, 43g Tapioca Flour, 85g Potato Starch.
  • Baking with protein can be drying. If you desire to use less protein, follow this combination: 1.5 cup Flour (192g) + ½ cup (64g) Protein Powder. **Highly Recommend**
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare muffin tin with cupcake liners. Lightly mist with Cooking Spray.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl, set aside.
  3. Combine Coconut Sugar, Coconut Oil and Applesauce in mixer for 3 minutes. Add Eggs and Vanilla Extract, mix for additional two minutes. Continue to mix, add flour mixture and milk alternately until blended.
  4. Evenly distribute into cupcake liners. Bake for 15-17 minutes (Be sure to watch, cooking with protein varies and dries baked goods quickly).
  5. (For Frosting) Combine all ingredients in bowl with hand mixer. Place in refrigerator until ready to use. *Add sweetener to taste if desired.**
  6. Remove cupcakes from oven. Allow to cool on cooling rack.
  7. Frost cupcakes with Protein Frosting as desired.
