Happy Birthday Aunt Terri! I hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed creating them [and eating them!] in your honor!
Mouthwatering Mango Cupcakes
an original recipe created by me!
1 cup fresh ground whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 c. naturally creamed honey
1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 c. unsweetened apple sauce
3 tbsp coconut oil, softened*
1/2 c. 100% unsweetened mango juice and puree
Preheat your oven to 350*F. Mix the dry ingredients together, then set aside. In your stand mixer, mix all the wet ingredients together until thoroughly combined. With the mixer on, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stop the mixer on occasion to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Pour the batter into medium sized cupcake liners [which are in a muffin tin of course ;)] and place in preheated oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven to wire rack, and let cool for a few minutes before placing cupcakes directly on wire rack. Cool completely and then enjoy! Yield 16 cupcakes
* to make these fat free, simply add more apple sauce instead of the coconut oil
