Nothing beats a baked treat on a zero degree Sunday in mid January.
These low fat, low sugar, darlings are by all means not a health food. They do fall into the category of a much healthier alternative for a sugar fix. Organic flour and organic sugar are still flour and sugar. However using plain soy yogurt and applesauce instead of oil is helpful. I modified a recipe from Vegan cupcakes take over the world to make these. Keeping them mini also helps, if your child, not you of course, eats two, they feel like they have had more that one large cupcake. I used my daughter’s “baby cakes” mini cupcake iron to make these. It was a gift from Santa, and it is wonderful. Cupcakes or healthy muffins in 5 to 7 minutes, without heating up the oven. Genius! I don’t have a picture, but I did make her a little bit of frosting from vegan cream cheese and soy protein powder. Sweet, nutritious and practically no sugar. Easy too.
