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 and here’s 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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine above ingredients and mix well. Fill each mini cupcake in the tin to the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Top with icing.
For the icing I make a cream cheese/maple syrup flavored icing to go on top. I have an all-natural, no-sugar recipe for frosting and I can pass it along to you if you would like. BUT when the actual cupcake is full of such wonderfully healthy things, I don’t mind at all they have sugar frosting on the top!
