Oh, and speaking of finding a way to a health-conscious person’s heart…
Guess who are we celebrating this weekend?
Hint: she’s the MOST HEALTH-CONSCIOUS person in your life!
Did you guess?
🙂 It’s your Mom! The very person who’s been teaching you to eat an apple a day (to ensure that the doctor stays away because you’re in such a great shape!).
…The sweet person who deserves the best sweet treat in the world!
And what can be a better treat than a batch of home-made cupcakes? 🙂
HEALTHY APPLE CINNAMON CUPCAKES RECIPE
So… what do you say? Would you like to make an impressive treat for your mom?
And here’s another (more important) question: (because I already know the answer to the first one! 🙂 )
Do you have the TIME and the ENERGY to make that impressive treat this weekend?
A-ha! Caught ya! 🙂…As much as we all would love to impress Mom with a home-made dessert… (I know exactly how it feels: I remember as a kid I LOVED impressing my mom with my baking! Only… at first I was impressing her with the messes! 🙂 But… thank you Mom for letting me make these messes so that I can share my recipes with my readers today!)
…And every time I baked my reward was always the delight on my Mom’s face! And what can possibly compare to that! 🙂
But here’s the caveat: as busy adults, not all of us always have the time or the energy to make a complicated treat!
This is why I made sure to keep the ingredient list for these Cupcakes short and sweet…
And to make the baking and decorating process as easy and busy-schedule-friendly as possible!
Finally you can choose from two frosting options depending on what you have in your pantry and what sounds easier and more doable to you!
I say that the Frosting #1 is the easiest! At the same time you’d need to thaw out the whipped topping which may take some time. To make frosting #2 you’ll need to use an electric whisk to ensure that the mix is incorporated with your yogurt. But if you have an electric mixer in the house – the whipping process is as easy as pie! 🙂P.S.
