3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This Red Velvet Protein Cupcakes Recipe

  1. It’s a high-protein, low-calorie cupcake option. Cupcakes aren’t known to be the most macro-friendly treat given that they typically contain little to no protein and are high in calories. However, our Red Velvet Protein Cupcakes contain 6g of protein each and contain only 145 calories, making it a great bang for your buck!
  2. The recipe only makes 6 cupcakes. Most cupcake recipes call for enough ingredients to make 2 dozen cupcakes, which is great for parties and events, but not a great option for those who want to enjoy a cupcake on occasion while practicing moderation. Our 6-cupcake serving is just right.
  3. They’re moist and flavorful. Sometimes protein treats and sweets can be a little dry and lackluster, however, our Red Velvet Protein Cupcakes are made with a high-quality protein powder that’s low-temperature baked which means it produces a delicious, moist cupcake that doesn’t taste like dry, chalky protein powder.

Equipment

  • 1 Large mixing bowl
  • 1 Mixing spoon or whisk
  • 1 Measuring Cups & Spoons
  • 1 Cupcake liners

Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line muffin tin with muffin liners and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together protein powder, melted coconut oil, Greek yogurt, vanilla, sugar alternative, almond flour, and baking powder. Whisk together until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Carefully pour cupcake batter into a lined muffin tin, splitting evenly across 6 liners. Be careful not to overfill the liners, keep them around ¾ full.
  • Place muffin tin in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully before frosting.
  • Frost the cupcakes, spreading 1tbsp. Of frosting onto each cupcake.
  • Optional, add sprinkles and enjoy!

Notes

Be sure to melt your coconut oil before adding it to your cupcake batter. To do so, add to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 15-30 seconds, watching closely.
If you don’t have red velvet protein powder, you can swap it for vanilla or chocolate protein powder, but you won’t get the same red velvet flavor.
Protein powders vary greatly in their consistency and texture when used in baking, be aware that the protein powder you choose might interfere with the outcome. I recommend using 1st Phorm Level-1 in the Red Velvet Cupcake Flavor for this particular recipe.
Cupcakes can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
