Healthy Blue Velvet Cupcakes

This isn’t your typical velvet cake — it’s not red, it’s BLUE!  Oh, and it won’t hurt your waistline either.  Just like my Red Velvet Cake (which I finally made vegan!), this recipe is whole grain, gluten free, low sugar and high protein.

Sweet and moist with a few healthy ingredients you would never expect — blueberries in the cupcakes, coconut in the frosting, strawberries in the drizzle.  All people will know is that these cupcakes are damn delicious, they just won’t know that they’re actually healthy.  Yup, I said it.  These cupcakes are good for you.  The cupcakes are made with oat flour and natural food coloring.  The frosting is made with yogurt and coconut butter.  The strawberry drizzle is homemade with fresh strawberries and natural food coloring.

Average number of cupcakes expected to be eaten by my taste testers:  1/2

Average number of cupcakes actually eaten by each taste tester:  3

I made homemade rainbow sprinkles, so what is the first thing I do with them? Bake them into a single-serving microwave cake of course! But not just one Funfetti cake for one type of person, I made single-serving Funfetti cakes for ALL!  Vegans can have these, gluten free’ers can have these, and oh, totally normal […]

I’ve made Homemade Rainbow Sprinkles before, but now I’ve finally made a kind that is durable enough to be mixed into a batter and colorful enough to maintain its color, from after baking to a few days after baking!  These won’t fade and these won’t melt, despite being naturally colored, sugar free, vegan and egg-white-free.

I’m having a blast with my best bud, Mr. Ice Cream Maker.  We’ve been hanging out a lot lately, I think I’ve made about seven batches of ice cream in the last month? … Wow.  We ARE joined at the hip (or is that the freezer door?) Something good always happens when we hang out.  Like […]
