After my run today I wanted something sweet so I decided to whip up some healthy cupcakes. I wanted to swap out the butter for something with a bit more protein and the Greek Yogurt base turned out so amazing I just kept making more flavors! Greek Yogurt makes them moist, rich and adds 3g of protein while making them (except where I added nuts) completely fat free! You can use the base recipe of yogurt, Truvia, egg whites, flour, soy milk, vanilla & salt then add whatever other fillings, extracts or flavors you like (next on my list is chocolate raspberry). Next time you want a sweet treat give these a try, they’re really easy to make and perfect for whatever your sweet tooth desires. :)
