At the request of my youngest, I baked Strawberry Cupcakes for him to take to daycare. These are about as healthy as you can get, low fat, low sugar and most important tasty!

Ingredients:
2 c flour (I used 1/2 reg & 1/2 whole wheat)
1/2 c sugar (coconuts palm sugar)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1 1/2 c diced strawberries
1/4 c canola or coconut oil
1 c milk
2 tsp vanilla

Frosting:
8 oz low fat cream cheese
1/2 – 1 c powdered sugar
1/4 c strawberries

Preheat over to 350. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners.

Whisk together dry ingredient. Whisk together wet ingredients. Combine. Fill cupcake tins 3/4 way. Bake for 18 – 22 minutes – when tester comes out clean.

Combine frosting ingredients in a food processor, process until combined and smooth. I only use about a 1/2 c sugar, add more to taste.

Makes about 18 cupcakes.
