  • INGREDIENTS

    150g (1 cup) grated carrots (about 3 carrots)
    80g (1/2) spelt or all-purpose flour
    50g (1/4 cup) almond flour (homemade is always better)
    60g (1/4 cup 2 Tbls ) vegetable oil (I used peanut oil)
    40g (1/4 cup ) brown sugar
    50g (1/4 cup) rice syrup or corn syrup or agave (or any other syrup of your choice)
    50g (1/4 cup) soy yogurt
    4g (1tsp) or to taste fresh ginger, grated
    ½ tsp backing soda
    ½ tsp backing powder
    zest of ½ orange
    pinch of salt

  • you can make a gluten free version changing following ingredients

    substitute spelt flour with buckwheat flour
    add 10g (1Tbls ) soy yogurt
    add 5g (1 tsp) oil
    add 1 tbls arrowroot
    your mixture must be creamy and not too dry

  • INSTRUCTIONS

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF).

    Line muffin tin with paper liners.

    Clean and peel the carrots and then grate them.

    Place whole almonds inside your blender and pulse for few seconds at time until you get a fine, grainy consistency. Do not pulse almonds for too long otherwise you'll end up having almond butter rather then almond flour!

    In a bowl, mix together vegetable oil, sugar, syrup and orange zest and whisk well.

    Sift in spelt flour, almond flour, baking powder, backing soda, salt and mix well.

  • Add 150g (1 cup) grated carrots and mix very well: you want a creamy and smooth mixture.

    Fill the paper liner with the mixture using a spoon and bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Test the doneness with a toothpick.

    Leave the oven door open to let the cupcakes cool there slowly.

    In the meantime, prepare cashew frosting. Find the recipe here > Raw Vegan Orange & Ginger Cashew Cream(recipe to follow)

    Place cashews, oil and syrup in a powerful blender and blend at high speed.

    After a couple of minutes, add orange juice and grated carrots (70-80g or ½ cup) and blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Finally add orange zest and ginger and blend for few more seconds.

    Adjust flavor to taste by adding ginger, syrup or more oil if you want it more creamy.

    Fill your pastry bag with cashews cream and frost the top of your cupcakes.

    Enjoy!!
