Thin Mint Protein Cupcakes. Soooo Good, You Feel Bad.

I was reminded today of this delicious Cupcake recipe I made almost 2 years ago. If you’re like me and you love thin mint cookies but you have a gluten allergy, THIS is a special treat for YOU.  This is a great way to Treat Yo’ Self, with out the added sugars as well. So Happy Holidays, and Enjoy this healthy, low carb high protein treat!
