I’ve been craving macaroni and cheese, yes it’s terrible for you, but I had to have it. I decided let’s try and make a healthier, high protein version of this treat. I also wanted to make it easier to portion control so I chose to make  them in a mini muffin tin.

[box type=”alert” border=”full”]Tip: Do not use paper cups like I did, it was a total fail! The macaroni stuck to the cups and made it hard to eat. It’s cute though isn’t it?[/box]
