These chocolate coconut protein cupcakes turned out super moist! One day I had no eggs or milk, but I did have a big bag of almost expired protein powder. I wanted to make some cupcakes and thought okay lets try and use what I have.
First I preheated the oven to 375 and greased a 12 capacity cupcake tin. Next I creamed sugar and butter together and then added the coconut milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl I added flour and cocoa powder, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mixed to combine. I then slowly added the dry mix to the wet and mixed until just combined.
I filled the cupcake tin and baked them in the oven for about 12 minutes. They came out light and fluffy and the cupcake dome was very tall! Each cupcake was very moist and my toddlers kept going back for more. I waited for mine to cool and then drizzled them with cream cheese frosting.
