For those times on Phase 1 when you're struggling with a sugar craving and desire some sweet treats!
1 packet of Ideal Protein Crispy Cereal, well crushed
1 packet of Ideal Protein drink mix (vanilla, chocolate, cappuccino)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 21 cavities of your nonstick mini cupcake pan well with nonstick spray (oil only, not the baking spray with flour). Mix the Crispy Cereal, the drink mix, the baking powder, and the baking soda.
Add the water, oil, and vinegar and blend well (the batter will get foamy; that’s the chemical reaction of the baking soda and the vinegar). Divide batter evenly among 21 mini cupcake cavities. Bake for 11 minutes in preheated oven.
Remove and let cupcakes cool on a baking rack.
4 ounces of water (OR 3 ounces of water and 2 T of Torani sugar free syrup, flavor of your choice)
2 T of Walden Farms dip (caramel, chocolate, marshmallow, strawberry) or Walden Farms Peanut Butter
1 packet of Ideal Protein pudding
Blend the water, the syrup, and the dip. Add the protein powder and blend again. For a smooth, fluffier texture, use an immersion blender. Refrigerate overnight.
Use a piping bag (or a Ziploc baggie with a small corner cut off) to pipe the frosting in a spiral on top of each cupcake. Top each cupcake with a drizzle of Walden Farms dip or an Ideal Protein Soy Puff.
