Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Place the egg whites in a large bowl and using a handheld mixer whip the whites on medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes or until the whites begin to lighten up and hold their shape.
  3. Increase speed to high and whip in the salt and honey until the whites hold a soft peak, then add the vanilla extract.
  4. Fold in the yogurt.
  5. In a separate medium mixing bowl combine the flour and baking powder and mix well.
  6. Sift the dry ingredients into the egg whites a little at a time, gently folding them in with a rubber spatula.
  7. Once fully incorporated, scoop the batter into cupcake tins lined with cupcake papers.
  8. Bake the cupcakes for 15 to 20 minutes or until they have colored and gently spring back when pushed with a finger.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool the cupcakes at room temp.
  10. Mix the cream cheese and the banana in a medium mixing bowl until well incorporated, leaving small chunks of banana throughout the frosting.
  11. Once cool, spread a little of the banana frosting over the cupcakes and top each with a raspberry
  12. Serve
