Little Cupcakes

May 18, 2009 by  

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!
