Cookies ‘n (Leaner) Creamer Cupcakes

 I had been seeing Leaner Creamer, the only all-natural powder coffee creamer that promotes weight loss of appetite suppression, all over social media so I decided to order a container in hopes that it would do what it promised.  I posted a picture of the container with my coffee on my instagram (https://instagram.com/p/65HG30n4y7/?taken-by=newsforchews) and the brand commented asking if I could come up with a cupcake recipe.  So, ask and you shall receive!  Here is today’s Cookies ‘n (Leaner) Creamer Cupcakes.

And yes I do actually think the product suppressed my appetite a little!
