These cupcakes were so fluffy. I love adding the protein frosting to the top to bump up the protein content. I also love how purple the jelly makes it!

I will be snacking on these the rest of this week between my meals.

Here is what the inside looks like:


Cupcakes you can feel good about eating?! Sign me up! These would be perfect for an after school snack for kids or even part of a healthy breakfast.
