National Cupcake Week Cupcake Roundup and 8 Healthy Cupcake Recipes you need

September 16, 2015

Did you know that September 14-20 is National Cupcake Week

I’m not sure if this is an official thing or not but why the hell not participate and enjoy a cupcake?!

Luckily I have eight awesome reasons to make cupcakes in honor of such a sweet week. Most of them healthy, all of them delicious.

Minion Cupcakes

Despicable Me Minion Cupcakes!

Who doesn’t love Minions?! They’re adorable little creatures and now you can devour them. These are not quite healthy but they are cute and easy and fun to make! Twinkie’s make up their round heads and Smarties for their googley eyes.

 

Vanilla Cupcakes

Outstanding Sugar Free Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

So soft and fluffy, these cupcake literally dissolve right in your mouth. Such a rich and fulfilling flavor and texture, you’ll grab one after another just to satisfy your taste bud’s demands (or was that just me?). 

 

Banana Bread Beer Cupcakes

Banana Bread Beer Cupcakes with Banana Bread Beer Glaze

These cupcakes are made with gluten free flours, are vegan, rich and moist, light and fluffy, and low in sugar– all sans the alcohol. You could leave out the beer but then you’d leave out half the fun. Made with Banana Bread Beer for extra fun!

 

Vegan Chocolate Cupcake

The Best Ever Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Rich, dense, gorgeous chocolate cupcakes that are easy to make and delightful to eat! This is a short cut recipe using a gluten-free baking mix for a great cupcake to be shared over and over. 🙂

 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

On the surface it just looks like a chocolate chip and vanilla cupcake. But in the middle it’s beaming with peanut buttery chocolate chip cookie dough goodness. And on the top, it’s graced with a chocolate peanut butter frosting. Did I mention it’s gluten-free?

 

Vanilla Almond Cupcakes

Vanilla Almond Cupcake/Muffins

Incredibly delicious, soft, fluffy, slightly sweet, naked, and outstanding. Passing for a muffin and can definitely be a cupcake, without any frosting, they’re wonderful and healthy. Maybe I’ll call them cupcakuffins.

Decadent Double Chocolate [beets hidden in the] Cake

One of the best damn cakes in the world! Hidden beet puree adds so much depth, texture, and moisture, this rich chocolate cake could be made into cupcakes and devoured just the same.

 

And now, for an extra recipe that you should make because these Lemon & Lavender Cupcakes with Rich Lavender Frosting are incredible. Boasting with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest, touched with dried lavender, these are delightful vanilla cupcakes with a rich vanilla lavender frosting. Just delicious!
