So the cupcakes pictured below aren’t the prettiest on the planet … in my defense, they were my first try. They were pretty darn tasty though! At 190 calories for both of them and with 26 grams of protein, who can resist?

chocolate pb protein pancakes


Chocolate and PB-frosted cupcakes


3/8 cup (1/2 packet) IsaLean Pro vanilla shake
1 egg white

1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1-2 tbsp. PB 2 (or to taste)
1/2 packet of stevia (or to taste)
1 tbsp (or so) of water

How to:

Stir the shake powder and egg white together in a small bowl. It will be thick. In each of two small bowls (I used Pyrex custard dishes), spoon in half of the mixture. Microwave for 50 seconds to 1 minute. Mixture will rise. Remove from microwave. Cakes should come out of the bowls pretty easily.

In another small dish, mix cocoa, PB2 and stevia with a small amount of water. Mix together, and spread on top of the cupcakes. Eat.
