Healthy Eating:Mini Cupcake Recipe
This is my daughter’s favorite food in the entire world. I have even heard her whining, “Little Cupcakes” in her sleep.
She helped me make these this morning, here is the recipe:
1 1/2 cups shredded/grated carrots
1/2 cup ground nuts
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
Full each mini cupcake in the tin to the fullest it can go. Cook at 350 for 15 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Top with icing. I make a cream cheese/maple syrup flavored icing to go on top. I have an all natural, no sugar recipe for frosting if you would like me to pass it along to you I can. BUT when the actual cupcake is full of such wonderfully healthy things, I don’t mind that there is sugar frosting on the top at all.
