  1. First, preheat the oven at 200°C.
  2. Grease a cupcake tray with a little oil. Roll out the sheet of pastry and use a circular cutter to cut out circles that can sit inside the cupcake tray. Place each pastry circle into a cupcake well and push down.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the custard, protein powder, cinnamon, and lemon zest. Then pour the mixture into each pastry case in the tray.
  4. Cook in the oven for around 25 minutes until the pastry is cooked and the tops are golden brown. Enjoy!
