Salted Caramel Protein Cupcakes

🎂Salted Caramel Protein Cupcakes🎂⠀

These turned out to yummy not to post! It’s a slightly different than the recipe I used for my lemon protein cupcakes, these are a bit higher in macros and overall calories. However if your macros will allow for it, these make for an awesome high protein snack!

Disclaimer:â €

This recipe calls for salted caramel protein powder but can easily be used with any other whey or @trutein protein flavor.â €
