Guilt-less Desserts & Treats for your Family

Paleo Gingerbread Cupcakes

Paleo Gingerbread Cupcake6

It’s been Christmas in my house since May. For the last 6 months we’ve been eating Gingerbread, Christmas Cookies and Puddings as I’ve experimented, tested and photographed over 50 festive desserts and treats for ‘Mummy a Made.It A Healthy Christmas’. I think I may have overdosed on Christmas cheer!!

Today I wanted to share with you a special recipe from ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Christmas’. It’s the cover recipe from the eBook: Paleo Gingerbread Cupcakes. I’m a big fan of cupcakes and I had to find a way to make them Christmassy. Cupcakes are simple to make and you can make a small amount to avoid eating cake for the next week (I’m sorry… did I really say that?!). These Paleo Gingerbread Cupcakes were inspired by ‘normal Gingerbread cupcakes’ that I used to consume by the bakers dozen; these though are tastier, healthier and frosted with the most scrumptious dairy free Gingerbread Cream.

There are 4 cupcake recipes in ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Christmas‘ but these Paleo Gingerbread Cupcakes are my favourite. To me it’s not Christmas without Gingerbread (this morning I even made my ‘Nana Icecream gingerbread flavoured!), and it’s not a real party without Cupcakes. Now we can all have our own guilt-less treats!

Make sure you get your own copy of ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Christmas’ before you fall into any festive food traps! With over 50 healthier festive treats you can have a tasty Christmas without the nasties.
