Breakfast Cupcakes W| Almond Butter Frosting


Lately, I have been all about balanced meals.

 You know, the ones that are good for the body and good for the tastebuds? For example..

skinny vanilla latte + a litre of water
raw veggies + a few squares of chocolate
salad + with extra goat cheese

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

spinach egg white omelette + a [healthy] cupcake.. for breakfast?!


If anyone has ever told you eating healthy is boring, they lied.

I however, would not lie to you.. These ARE healthy. I even snuck some vegetables in here for brownie cupcake points.


Makes 10 large muffins
inspired by these muffins from immaeatthat.

1 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp ground flax
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp baking stevia [more if you like muffins sweet]
1 carrot, grated
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped figs
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp greek yogurt + dollop of almond butter whisked together for icing

Preheat oven to 375. Combine dry ingredients, including nuts and figs in a bowl and set aside. Blend all wet ingredients together until smooth, stir in flax and grated carrot. Fold wet ingredients into dry until JUST combined. Pour into lined muffin pan and bake for 12-15 mins.

Let cool completely before storing. Last 4 days on the counter. I froze half the batch and they are still delicious warmed up.

  1. Yum, I love this idea! I need to share this with my sister, she has young picky eaters, but like all kids they love treats, I can actually see her getting them to eat breakfast if she offered them a cupcake:) The healthy part can just stay her secret:) Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look awesome!! Do you think I could omit the yogurt or sub it for something?

    Why yes, yes I would like a bite(…likely way more than one).

    I know I’d love these for a fact. Heeey FIGS!!
    I’d munch the bottom part, then save bites that are roughly a 1:1 ratio of cake to frosting till last <- my general cupcake tactics.

  4. One way to maintain a healthy life style is to sustain the natural need of our body that is to absorb carotenoids from the fatty foods that we eat or fat-soluble vitamins. Dairy product like butter consist of butterfat, milk protein and water that will sustain the need of your body. Kindly visit
