Modern PROTEIN Recipes | Protein Cupcakes

August 25, 2016

Today I celebrate 3 weeks sober, no not from alcohol, although I strongly discourage the mix of booze and barbells.  I haven’t touched anything glazed, fried or frosted for 21 days, well until today but I was celebrating so it’s alright.   I needed a cupcake or 6 to power through my Thursday so a good friend of the Barbell Club was kind enough to give me his recipe.  Enjoy and do a little celebrating with me.
