Healthy Eating:Mini Cupcake Recipe

April 7th, 2008 in Freebie Posts, Health

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.
