CUPCAKES – Kid Approved And Clean & Healthy!

on April 2, 2015

🌸Luna and I went to a three year old’s birthday party this week.  It was a pizza and cupcake party – yes, I cringed 😝.  I managed to keep Luna on track for the most part by bringing a cooked Amy’s Pizza that is organic flour & tomatoes.  Luna did lick some of the frosting of a cupcake and said she was done- pheew!  So, all in all not bad and instilling healthy values at a young age is paying off 😄👍.  I’ve been brainstorming how to make these kids parties healthier and here’s a clean cupcake recipe we made yesterday.  Yes, frosting too is clean!

 

My little helper enjoys the entire process from beginning to end!  Here’s the recipe!

🌸All ingredients ORGANIC
🌸1/4 cup coconut flour
🌸3 eggs
🌸1/4 cup ghee or butter
🌸1/4 teaspoon baking soda
🌸1 tablespoon vanilla extract
🌸1 tablespoon raw agave
🌸1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
🌸1/4 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt

 
🌸Preheat oven 350F
🌸In a food processor, mix coconut flour, baking soda, salt
🌸Mix in egg, ghee, agave, honey, vanilla
🌸Pulse until smooth and creamy
🌸Line a cupcake pan with 6 liners
🌸Scoop about 1/4 cup of mixture in each
🌸Bake for 20 minutes
🌸Let cool for 1 hour

 
🌸FROSTING

🌸2 cans of coconut cream placed in fridge overnight to condense
🌸Scoop out condensed content into blender
🌸Add 2 tablespoons agave or 2 soaked Medjool dates
🌸Blend until smooth. You may have to add a tablespoon of the coconut milk left over in container if it’s too chunky
🌸Add 1-2 drops of India Tree vegetable color – I used red – and mix in and frost.

🌸Chocolate frosting: add 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder to above.

🌸OR Chocolate frosting this method:
🌸In a sauce pan, melt 1 cup cacao chips or semi sweet vegan chips with 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Mix
🌸Place in fridge for 30 minutes to thicken
🌸Remove and whip with blender and frost

 
🌸SPRINKLES
🌸I grated cacao chips over each cupcake

💖💖All healthy, well a little fattening, but good fats, tasty and safe for all! Enjoy, be happy, be healthy! 💖💖
