Healthy Vanilla Cupcakes

Makes 16 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups spelt flour or gluten-free flour (my favourite basic GF mix recipe here)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 12 packets corn-free stevia
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups 0% greek yogurt (for dairy free use plain or vanilla coconut yogurt or soy yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

Icing: (For dairy-free use alternative icing, or sub the cream cheese with soy cream-cheese and the butter with a dairy-free margarine or butter!)

  • 60g cream cheese, softened
  • 30g butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 3/4 icing sugar

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees C.  Line a muffin or cupcake tin with cases.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients and stir (spelt flour, baking powder/soda/salt, stevia).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, yogurt & lastly, coconut oil). 
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined. Mixture will be much thicker than traditional cupcake batter.
  5. Scoop into cupcake liners or grease/spray your muffin tins.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes until just golden around the edges and a toothpick comes clean. Leave in pan for 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool.
  7. For the icing: combine all the ingredients in a bowl and either use beaters or a food processor to combine. Frost your cupcakes once they are cooled and enjoy!
