Carrot Cake Protein Cupcakes {Clean Eating}

This Carrot Cake Protein Cupcake recipe is adapted from Jamie Eason’s Carrot Protein Bar recipe. You can find the original recipe HERE.
I love the protein bars, but there is something so fun about a “protein cupcake”!
I’ve based this recipe off of Jamie’s, but tweaked it to create cupcakes with greek yogurt “icing”.

I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, like great white shark size!
So these cupcakes are the perfect healthy treat!
