PROTEIN Red Velvet Cupcakes Recipe (Only 75 Calories!)

Protein Red Velvet Cupcakes Recipe
Written by Derek Howes

The perfect blend of red velvet, cupcakes, and of course PROTEIN packed into my favorite PROTEIN red velvet cupcakes recipe!

Here is the recipe:

  • 1 3/4 Cups (140g) Rolled Oats (turned into Oat Flour)
  • 3 Tablespoons (15g) Baking Cocoa
  • 1/2 Cup Sweetener (in dry mix)
  • 3 Scoops (90g) Vanilla Protein
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 4 Large Egg Whites
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Red Food Coloring (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup (244g) Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Sweetener (in wet mix)
  • 10 Drops Liquid Sweetener

Turn your rolled oats into oat flour by blending/processing them. Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and wet in another. Slowly combine wet ingredients into dry. Spray non-stick cooking spray onto muffin cups (I suggest using silicone muffin cups). Fill cups 3/4 of the way full with mixed ingredients. Bake on 350 for 18:00-22:00! Try to only eat one!

  • Tip: Top them with my protein frosting recipe!
