One Point Carrot Cake Protein Cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of any flavor protein powder ( I recommend using Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake but you could use any protein powder or you can add additional 1/4 cup kodiak pancake mix if you prefer in place of the protein powder.
  • 1/4 cup peeled and shredded carrots
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup cup water ( give or take depending on the batter consistency)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp for topping
  • 3 Tbsp. Stevia/Splenda or sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp Pillsbury sugar free vanilla frosting

Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a full size muffin tin with 12 foil liners.
    In a medium bowl add egg, water, extract, and stevia or sugar substitute. Stir well.
    In a separate bowl combine protein powder, kodiak pancake mix, pumpkin spice,cinnamon and baking powder.
    Add dry ingredients into the wet slowly as you stir. Stir just until combined. Then fold in shredded carrots.
    DO NOT OVER MIX.
    Pour into muffin *foiled liners ( or spray the muffin tin with non stick cooking spray).
    Bake for 15-18 minutes or until an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean.
    Topping: Melt 2 Tbsp sugar free Pillsbury vanilla frosting in microwave bowl and evenly drizzle over all 12 cupcakes. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of each cupcake.
    Store in an airtight container.

Servings: Makes 12 full size cupcakes / 1 Freestyle SmartPoints® per muffin.
