These would make great treats for a kids birthday celebration! All healthy real food ingredients Adding some chopped strawberries to the cupcake would be really good also! I am trying to start using only dates and stevia for sweeteners because of candida issues. Honey and maple seem to react similar to sugar in my body and create an environment for candida to have a party in my body! I think some my issues with the raw food diet are actually not the raw foods but candida issues. Since I started taking probiotics I have not noticed the weight gain and thinning hair as I did a few weeks ago. I actually feel like my hair has been growing faster since going raw a few weeks ago.

Raw lemon cupcake

1/3 cup +4 tablespoons ground sunflower seeds

4 tablespoons ground sprouted buckwheat groats

1/3 cup + 4 tablespoons ground coconut shreds

1/3 cup ground cashews

lemon juice of 2 lemons

2 1/2 tablespoons of lemon zest

1/3 cup coconut milk

10 soaked medjool dates

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt

strawberry frosting

1 1/2 cups strawberries

1-2 soaked medjool dates

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1 tablespoon cocoa butter or coconut oil melted

3 tablespoons ground cashews

a few drops of stevia (optional)

small pinch of sea salt (optional)

* Mix the cupcake ingredients together and put in cupcake papers ( I use the silicone reusable ones) and put in the dehydrator for a few hours.

* Blend/process the frosting ingredients and put in a pastry bag with decorative pastry tips and put the frosting on the cakes. Make sure the cakes are cooled off because if they are warm the frosting may start to melt. Also if you put the frosting in the refrigerator for an hour or so before using it will be more firm.

* Sprinkle with lemon zest optional. Enjoy! Makes 6 cupcakes.

  1. These look amazing 🙂 Never mind a children’s birthday party – I want them for my own celebrations!

  2. Oh wow. These look and sound so good!!! I’m so jealous right now. My entire kitchen is in a storage unit while we look for our next home. I’m having raw food creation withdrawl! I’ll have to live vicariously through you until I’m up and running again! I hope you’ll share this at Raw Foods Thursdays this week!
