It’s that time of year again… when resolutions to eat healthy and work out start to slip. Life gets in the way and meal prep and gym time don’t stay priorities. As we say, you can have your cupcake and eat it too!
Jumping right in to anything can be detrimental to your long term progress. It’s always better to start slow and make small changes here and there. Find things that work for you and your lifestyle. As a result, we suggest you make healthy cupcakes!
Don’t forget that it’s okay to indulge once in a while. But even your indulgences can be a little bit healthier. Westpoint Naturals wants you to be able to have your cupcake and eat it too! These chocolate beet cupcakes are inspired by our resolution to eat more vegetables and our love for cupcakes! We think Beets are most noteworthy because they are loaded with vitamins including vitamin C, folate and fibre. They also contain unique nutrients called betalains, which contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
These cupcakes are super moist, fudge-y and addictive and don’t taste like beets at all! They don’t even need frosting, but we’ve added a creamy cashew frosting for an extra boost of protein.
Furthermore, you can substitute all-purpose free flour for all purpose gluten free flour or all-purpose whole wheat flour.
While it may be tough to wait, the frosting is easiest to handle when cold. As a result, your cupcakes will be much more beautiful.
