Apple-Carrot Cupcakes

If you like apples and you like carrots putting them together is a like a beautiful marriage. The flavors just go so good together.  I actually came up with recipe by accident but I am glad I did because they really are good.  You can top them with powder sugar like I did in the picture or you can use a vanilla or Cream Cheese frosting.

Apple-Carrots Cupcakes

Peel and core 2 apples and 2 carrots.  Place them into a food processor until they are chopped to the consistency you like.

Mix all of your dry ingredient together:

1 1/4 cup Flour
1/4 cup Milled Flax Seed
1/2 cup Quick Cooking Oats ( I ground my into a flour)
1/4 cup Organic Coconut
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons organic cinnamon

Stir everything together and set aside. 

In a separate bowl mix your wet ingredients:

2/3 cup Almond Milk
1/4 cup Canola oil
3 egg Whites
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Slowly merge the two bowls of ingredients together being careful not to overwork the batter. Place paper cups into your muffin pan and lightly spray the paper cups with a cooking spray to make sure your muffins do not stick. Fill the cups 3/4 full and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.  After the cupcakes have cooled you can either dust them with powder sugar or frosting them with vanilla or Cream Cheese icing. 


  1. Yes apples and carrots are wonderful mates in recipes and then you go and add luscious coconut and you have a tasty trio for sure!! The only thing is I am lacking the organic cinnamon, etc. so if you sell these organic spices, let me know and place the link in the word "organic cinnamon" because I am sure your readers would love to buy from you since you ship so quickly and offer such great products at a great price :)

    1. Thanks Dawn, that is a great idea about placing the link. Hopefully that will sink into my head.
