Preheat your oven to 380f or 190c The easiest way to make these is to use individual cupcake liners as if you use a tin, they may stick-even if you oil the tins well.

Mix all the dry ingredients together and mix the wet ingredients separately. Gradually mix together the wet and dry ingredients. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more water until you get a smooth mixture. If its too wet, add a little extra protein or oats to thicken.

Divide the mixture into 24 cupcakes and cook for aprox 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.

They taste great straight from the oven but also can be stored or frozen for future use. I like to reheat mine and eat warm.

The basic recipe can be tailored to your taste by adding coconut, you could replace the chocolate chips with dried fruit, but if you make substitutions, the macros will change.  I used a mixture of soya and whey protein but you could use any protein or different flavours.
