    PREPARATIONS:

    1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat 2 (12-cup) muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, whole egg, coconut oil and Greek yogurt and whisk until smooth.
    3. Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth and a thinner consistency.
    4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins about ¾ full and place in oven to bake. After 10 minutes, lower temperature to 350°F.

    7. While cupcakes cool, prepare the frosting. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese and vanilla extract and use a spatula to mix thoroughly. Slowly stir in the protein powder in increments until fully incorporated into the icing. Set aside until cupcakes have cooled.
    8. Once cupcakes have cooled, frost as desired and enjoy.
