Mango-Chocolate Mini Protein Cupcakes

natural protein snack bar
Here we are another natural, low-sugar snack that you can easily whip up at home while food prepping for the week for yourself and for the family. 
The best benefit you can get out of natural, low-sugar snacks like this is that it keeps you satisfied between meals, you can share them with your family and colleagues and you won't suffer from the well-known 3pm sugar crash. 
If you feel like making a bigger batch, I'd encourage you to freeze the extra stock without the topping. You can always make a fresh batch when you remove the cupcakes from the freezer.

Top Tips

Depending on which protein powder you use you may need more or less milk for your base. Slowly add the milk to your dry ingredients, keep mixing it until you get a thick, smooth cake batter.
