Guilt-less Desserts & Treats for your Family
It’s almost Easter, although it feels like it’s been almost Easter since Boxing Day when the shops started pedalling Easter Eggs and baking Buns. Now it is officially Easter season which means it’s ok to eat lots of hot cross buns and chocolate eggs (without the normal judgement!).
Easter can be a difficult and taunting time of year if you suffer from food allergies, especially dairy and gluten. The tempting smell that wafts from the bakery is an aromatic reminder that your Easter will be Hot Cross Bun-less… until now! This year I want your Easter to be filled with hot cross-ness and chocolatey goodness. I want to help to make your Easter tasty, healthy and full of your favourite treats. That’s why I have written ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Easter’, with over 30 Easter themed recipes for you to enjoy.

Today I am bringing to you one of the cupcake recipes from ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Easter’; Paleo Carrot Cupcakes. This is a simple cupcake recipe made from steamed pureed carrots (instead of grated carrots), coconut flour, eggs and maple syrup and tastes great when topped with Whipped Coconut Cream or Lemon cream. As these Paleo Carrot Cupcakes are also Nut Free they are a good school treat as well.
