One of our favorite holidays is Valentine’s Day, the day to show everyone LOVE! I have always loved being in the kitchen and now love it even more because Lily wants to learn how to cook. One of our favorite mother and daughter recipes is honey cupcakes. This month Lily wanted to put her own spin on it, so here is the recipe for Lily’s love cupcakes!

Ingredients:

½ cup coconut oil (liquefied)

¾ cup of honey

1 cup of applesauce (room temperature works best)

½- ¾ cup of pureed strawberry

1½ cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. cinnamon

Topping:

12 ounces of cream cheese (room temperature)

¼- ½ cup of honey (depending on sweet tooth)

1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together the coconut oil, honey, applesauce, and the strawberry puree until smooth. Then add the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon; mix until everything is mixed, about 2 minutes. Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners and spray with your favorite cooking spray; we LOVE using FSC certified baking cups because then you don’t have to spray them. Fill the baking cups with batter a little over half way full; makes about 16 cupcakes. Place in the oven and cook for 17-20 minutes or until the tooth pick comes out clean, then pull out of the oven and let cool. Some ovens work differently so make sure to keep an eye on them.

While the cupcakes are cooling; take the cream cheese, honey, and cocoa powder and mix with a mixer until nice and smooth and creamy. When the cupcakes are cooled down; either spread or use a piping bag to top the cupcakes. Then decorate the cupcakes with bits of strawberry and/or chocolate chips. Enjoy!
