High Protein Pumpkin Cocoa Cupcakes With High Protein Frosting


3 scoops whey protein powder-I used True Protein French Vanilla Cr?me.
9 egg whites
3/4cup organic pumpkin, canned
6 tbsp. Ground flaxseed
8 packets powdered vanilla Stevia
3 tbsp. unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder-Trader Joe?s
2 tsp. baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 12- cup muffin tin with paper liners or use place a thin layer of coconut oil in each tin. ( I used the coconut oil)Muffins
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Blend together in a blender or use a handheld whisk. (I used a wire whisk and it blended the ingredients together well.)
Divide the muffin mixture into the tins.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until fully cooked through. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into a muffin and if the pick comes out clean, it is ready. Remove from oven.
Let cool on wire racks.


1 cup Vanilla whey protein-I used True Protein French Vanilla Cr?me

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 packet vanilla Stevia

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Add either water or Unsweetened Almond Milk and stir until smooth. I used the Unsweetened Almond Milk and just poured it into the bowl until I got the consistency of frosting. I then put the frosting in the refrigerator, it was better after it sat in the refrigerator for awhile. Instead of frosting each muffin right away, I put the muffins into a zip lock bag to ensure freshness and put the frosting on as I ate them. This frosting is really yummy!!
