Ingredients

PUPCAKE BATTER

  • 1 flax egg 1T ground flaxseed mixed with 3T water, allow to sit for 10 minutes
  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter sugar free
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

FROSTING

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1-2 T of coconut milk or until the frosting reaches a thick, but spreadable consistency

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line a cupcake tin with liners.*
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flax egg, banana, carrots, peanut butter, olive oil, coconut milk, and vanilla. Whisk until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the remaining ingredients and stir into the liquids until fully incorporated.
  5. Divide evenly among cupcake liners.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.**
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
  8. For the frosting, mix the peanut butter and coconut milk until it has reached desired consistency and apply to pupcakes using either a piping bag (I recommend a star-shaped tip as opposed to a round tip, because poop) or a frosting knife.

Recipe Notes

*I used 2" (55mm) cupcake liners.

 

**I made these in a rather inconsistent Ecuadorian oven where I had no idea what the actual temperature was. I based the bake time on other recipes I studied and on the time it took me to bake. I plan to make these again when I have access to a reliable oven and will update when I do!
