I find most “healthy” sweet treat recipes, particularly those made with whey protein and oats tend to be too dry and it has put me off making them recently. Not this time! The inclusion of apple sauce and pumpkin offset the dryness of the oats and whey to create a beautiful, moist texture. Topped with a simple Greek yoghurt and casein protein frosting for even more flavour.


Preheat oven to 160C

Combine ingredients and blend until smooth

Divide the mixture into 6 greased cupcake moulds (VERY important they are greased, as cooking without traditional flour makes the mixture stick, I used a low calorie spray)

Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown

The cupcakes will likely come out wobbly due to using oats and whey but they will shrink slightly and tighten up when cooled
