  • 3 scoops vanilla whey protein powder (35g per scoop)

  • 1⁄2 cup gluten free flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 10 grams peanut butter powder

  • 1⁄2 cup non-fat greek yogurt

  • 1⁄4 cup no salt butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 3⁄4 cups vanilla cashew milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 mini Reese’s Pieces

  • 2 ounces fat free cream cheese

  • 1⁄4 cup fat free vanilla greek yogurt

  • 1⁄4 cup Swerve zero calorie sweetener

  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (35g)

  • 5 grams peanut butter powder

  • Reeses’ Pieces for topping


  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Gradually add the milk, yogurt, butter, and egg to the dry mixture, stirring until smooth.
  • Fold the sprinkles into the batter.
  • Divide the batter evenly, filling each cupcake liner 3/4 full. The batter will rise as it bakes.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Be careful not to overcook, as protein-enriched foods can become dry if overcooked.
  • Remove the cupcakes from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and let cool.
  • While your cupcakes are cooling, combine all the frosting ingredients in a bowl.
  • You can either spread the frosting onto the cupcakes with a knife or use a piping bag or resealable plastic bag with a corner cut off for more precision.
  • If you’re not planning to eat all the cupcakes immediately, it’s best to leave them unfrosted and store the frosting separately in the refrigerator.
