PEScience just recently released a new whey protein Select flavor: Frosted Chocolate Cupcake and  it’s safe to say that I am obsessed! So naturally, I had to make chocolate cupcakes using this new protein flavor.

These decadent cupcakes are topped with chocolate greek yogurt frosting and that makes them double chocolate. Yay! Cupcakes for the win!


Cupcakes, chocolate, sprinkles–what else could you possible want in a healthy dessert!?
