This is my daughter’s favorite food in the entire world. I have even heard her whining, “Little Cupcakes” in her sleep. I usually make a large batch and divide them into sections to freeze for a later date. These are the perfect healthy, organic and tasty little treat to make with your children!
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 organic 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.
3 questions –
can you provide the maple/cream cheese icing recipe? with the flax seed – is that flax seed meal/ground flax?
what type of ground nuts do you usually use?
looks great! (and a fun way to get some carrots past my picky toddler’s teeth 🙂
The recipe sounds really good! I would also like to know how you make the cream cheese icing! Please share! 🙂
Please send me the recipe for the frosting!!! They sound so good..can’t wait to try them.
I can’t wait to try this recipe! If you’re sending out the frosting recipe by e-mail, please add me to your list. Thanks!
That sounds so good! Love that it’s dairy-free and soy-free too. Now if I could just find a frosting that would work too…

Great recipe! – could you please send the recipe for both types of frosting?
i’m planning on making these for my daughter’s first birthday. a few questions: 1. is it ok to make a couple dozen and freeze them before the big day? just thaw them in the fridge?, 2. how do i alter the recipe if i’m going to make “normal” sized cupcakes?, 3. can you pass on the icing recipe? thanks!
