Banana & Salted Caramel Protein Cupcakes

Banana & Salted Caramel Protein CupcakesAll kinds of magical cakes come to life when you enter the world of vegan desserts:

EXPOREBrightly colored cupcakes, soft and fluffy muffins, and beautifully-frosted spongecakes.

They’re all absolutely gorgeous!

But most of them are lacking in one thing: protein, while they’re brimming in another: sugar.

That’s why those of us who strive to follow a low-sugar and high-protein diet often walk right by them.

We just don’t see them as a source of nutrition, you know?

They’re just a high-carb YEHA‘treat’ that our bodies don’t really need (they may want, sure, but need? Not really).

The same can be said of traditional egg-sugar-flour-and-butter-based cakes – they’ re tasty, sure! But a ‘health food’? That they ain’t…

AKESSo we don’t really buy them that regularly.

And, like so, we end up cakeless.

And we miss out on the pleasure that comes from opening our mouths wide and attempting to eat an entire slice of cake or a cupcake in one mouthful without ending up looking like a pie-covered clown.

Guess what though? The wait is over. You can now make cupcakes a regular part of your healthy-eating diet. You can, in other words, have your (cup)cake – and eat it too!

Because check this out:

YEAHThese cupcakes are gluten-free, high in dietary fiber, rich in protein, and bursting at the seams with vitamins and minerals: vitamin C, zinc, selenium, magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium.

They’re also incredible delicious!

So try them, please. Even if you’re not vegan, try them. Even if you eat gluten and are a heavy consumer of traditional sugary cupcakes, try them! They’ll absolutely blow you away.
