How to make it
Making cupcakes using a recipe that has a high quantity of protein is one of my favourite ways to get in a little bit of extra protein while still enjoying a delicious treat. Adding a scoop of protein powder to a cupcake doesn’t change the taste or texture much, but it does dramatically boost the cupcake’s protein level.
Beautifully exemplifying this idea are these cream cheese cupcakes. With an endless supply of chocolate cupcakes, blueberry protein cupcakes, and healthy banana protein cupcakes already on the market, we figured it was time to try something new and try out a taste combination that isn’t as prevalent. The high-protein cupcake batter includes both poppy seeds and tangy cream cheese. Poppy seeds are sprinkled on top as well.
Each cupcake has a dollop of jam in the middle. The final result is a cupcake with all the comforting characteristics of a classic jam sponge: creaminess, sweetness, and nuttiness. You may easily meet your daily protein needs by eating one of these healthy cupcakes in between meals.
Pieces or elements
Poppy seeds have a taste that falls somewhere between sweet and nutty. Even if they aren’t as spicy as, say, sesame seeds, the roasting procedure may bring out more of their taste.
The versatility of flour
You may use either white flour or wheat prepared from whole grains, whichever you want. Whole wheat flour is the best option if you’re concerned about your health since it has more fibre and critical minerals.
Vanilla-flavored protein powder
Any protein powder will do; I used whey protein powder since it’s what I had on hand, but any other sort should work just as well. Avoid the unflavoured ones in lieu of the vanilla-flavored ones, since the latter is my recommendation.
You may acquire jam in whatever taste you choose from this store. I like cherry or raspberry, although blackberry or strawberry can do in a pinch. Or, to try something different, how about some apricot jam? Make sure the jam you choose isn’t too thick, since you want the filling to be delicious and runny.
Eggs and More
The binding procedure, of course, requires eggs. Eggs may be replaced with chia or flax eggs if you’re vegan. Simply mix one tablespoon of powdered flax seeds with two and a half teaspoons of water, give the mixture a good stir, and then let it aside for a few minutes to “egg” it.
Dairy or alternative milks may be used interchangeably in this recipe. Oat milk was evaluated, and it showed excellent results!
