1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

3/4 cup almond milk

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/3 cup low fat Greek yogurt

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup strawberries, diced

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line 14 cupcake cups with liners.

  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl then add in the protein powder, baking powder and baking soda and mix together.
