HIGH PROTEIN CARROT CUPCAKES !

I’ve always been a big carrot cake fan so I thought what better recipe to sprinkle a little high protein magic to! These carrot cake-cupcakes are honestly delicious and while they’re pretty high in protein they’re seriously low in fats. 

You can use this exact recipe to bake 1 cake or bake 16 cupcakes the choice is yours.
