MyoFusion Pro Cupcakes
04/03/2012

After catching an episode of that show Cupcake Wars, I was inspired to get baking with MyoFusion Pro. I created a  super clean, guilt-free, MyoFusion Pro Cupcake recipe that will definitely satisfy your sweet cravings but not derail your goals.  I included a recipe for each of  four different flavors: Banana Nut Creme, Double Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter & Cinnamon Sweet Potato.  While the nutrition facts vary slightly for each flavor, each smaller-sized cupcake is less than 200 calories, with about 25 grams of protein, 14 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fat.  ENJOY!!

INSTRUCTIONS

1)         Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

2)         Place cupcake foil liners in a cupcake pan.(The cupcakes seem to stick to the paper liners. You can also not use a liner and just spray the pan with PAM.)

3)         Blend all cupcake ingredients together in a small blender like a Magic Bullet.

4) Pour batter into 2  liners for smaller cupcakes or 1 for a bigger cupcake. For the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor, spoon the peanut butter into the center of the cupcake batter.

DO NOT fill each cupcake liner more than ¾ full, as the muffin will expand in the oven and potentially make a big mess. (Yeah, I made this mistake.)

5) Bake for 10 – 16 minutes, until a fork (or toothpick) comes out clean when you pierce a cupcake with it. If you cook the cupcake too long, it will come out dry.

6) Let the cupcake(s) cool.

7) To make the icing, mix together the Greek yogurt and the MyoFusion PRO protein powder in a bowl. Add the almond butter for the Banana Nut Crème Cupcake. Place in the fridge for about 10 minutes so it can thicken and set. This is a critical step to ensure the icing is thick, not runny. Also, you can make the icing thicker by adding more protein powder. Spoon and spread onto the top of the cooled cupcake(s) and garnish with fruit or nuts, if desired. Enjoy! Refrigerate any leftovers.
