I love desserts. Cakes, cupcakes, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, anything sweet really. I’m not overly particular, but that calorie count will keep me away most days. How does a low calorie vanilla cupcake sound? Sounds PERFECT to me!  I adapted this recipe from one I found on Hungry Girl and I was excited to try it.  I will admit that these Low Calorie Vanilla Cupcakes will take you a bit longer to prep than the regular out of the box cupcakes, but the fact that you won’t have the guilt is totally worth it!
