Carrots are a rich source of beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is important for tissue growth and repair, thyroid function and iron mobilsation. Carrots are also an amazing source of vitamin C, B6, potassium and fibre.
I use almond meal because its full of protein (from the almonds), its gluten free and adds moisture.
3 cups Almond Meal
2 tsp of baking soda
2 large carrots (grated)
3 organic eggs
handful of roughly chopped walnuts
8 fresh dates (chopped)
2 tabs coconut oil
1 heaped tsp of raw honey
1 tsp of nutmeg
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder OR vanilla essence
pinch pink salt
Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
Add all ingredients to big glass mixing bowl, whisk eggs together before putting into mix.
Make sure well combine.
Place cupcake wrappers on a big tray.
Divide mixture evenly into cupcake wrappers,
Bake for 20mins.
Once they are cooled and ready to be served add (dairy free) coconut yoghurt and grated carrot.
