Baking with Kids + Clean Vanilla Cupcake Recipe


I had a lot of fun playing hooky with the kids from school Friday. We were doing some intensive new things with the boys over the weekend {potty training} and needed that extra day. So, for our training we use mini-cupcakes as rewards. They are the perfect little bite that makes the kids feel really special and keep them coming back for regular breaks.


Well, with these guilt free little cupcakes they can eat as many as they want in a day and I still feel like a good mom. They are made without sugars of any kind and they are whole wheat! While we were home trying to get things moving we whipped up another batch and some photos to share!


>>> INGREDIENTS <<<

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Truvia Spoonable
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/3 cups buttermilk


>>> DIRECTIONS <<<

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into your molds and bake!


For mini-cupcakes the recipe makes about 48 and they bake for 10-15 minutes. Check with a toothpick to see that it comes out mostly clean. For regular cupcakes they bake about 18-23 minutes and create 12.
