Banana Brown Rice Protein Cupcakes with Protein Icing
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 scoop chocolate whey isolate protein powder
- 2/3 cup brown rice flour (or all-purpose flour but it would not be gluten-free)
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp almond extract
- 1 egg
- 6g (~3 packets) Stevia in the raw
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp almond milk (unsweetened).
- 1 scoop vanilla whey isolate protein powder
- 6 tbsp fat-free TruWhip (or coconut whip or low-calorie Cool Whip)
- 4oz reduced-fat cream cheese
Mash a banana in a mixing bowl with a fork, then add the rest of the ingredients for the batter. Gently fold the ingredients together with a spatula until no more powder is visible.
Evenly divide the batter among 6 Texas-size cupcake molds (or 8-10 standard-size cupcake molds).
Bake in the oven for about 12 – 15 minutes at 350F, or until you can stick a toothpick in one and it comes out clean. Set aside to cool in the molds.
In another bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the icing. Then place in a sealable bag, like a Ziploc bag, and cut the corner off to create an icing piping bag.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, put a little icing on each one and garnish with a banana slice. Enjoy!
