Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 51g whey (I used Trutein cinnabon flavor)
  • 21g coconut flour
  • 120g canned pure pumpkin
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • stevia to taste
  • water to desired consistency
  • 60g liquid egg whites

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 176g whipped Greek cream cheese (regular low fat whipped cream cheese is fine)
  • stevia to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients except water in a mixing bowl, then slowly add water to desired consistency. You’ll want the consistency to be a little thicker than pudding.
  3. Spray muffin pan with pam and fill each cup half-way. You should be able to get around 7-8 cupcakes depending on how much water was added.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes and continue baking, checking every 3 minutes or so until you can stick a toothpick in the cake and it comes out clean.
  5. Take cupcakes out of oven and let cool.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine whipped cream cheese and stevia to make frosting.
  7. Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes, add a dash of cinnamon on top and enjoy!

I recommend listening to and reading his resources to any of my friends looking for science-backed fitness information to guide them on their path of knowledge expansion within the realm of fitness. He's one of the few people i've found to be a reliable, educational, no b.s. resource."
