Ingredients
For Carrot cupcakes:
  • Grated Carrots-1 heaped cup
  • Pitted Medjool dates-1 cup
  • Raw Walnuts-1/2 cup
  • Chia seeds-1 Tbsp
  • Vanilla Extract-2 tsp
  • Shredded Coconut-1/4 cup
  • Ground cloves, nutmeg-1/4 tsp
  • Ground cinnamon-1 tsp
  • Orange juice-1/4 cup
  • Salt-a pinch
  • Agave/Coconut Nectar-2 Tbsp (if carrots, dates are not sweet enough)
Coconut Lemon Icing:

  • Lemon juice-2 Tbsp
  • Vanilla extract-1.5 tsp
  • Agave/Coconut nectar-1/4 cup

Instructions
  1. In a food processor, add all the ingredients and process until it comes together as a dough.
  2. Cling wrap a muffin pan and press the dough inside them. These will be your cupcakes
  3. Chuck it into the freezer for an hour. Start with the icing straightaway.
  4. For the icing, whisk all the ingredients ( I usually chuck them in the processor) together. Refrigerate (not freeze) that for an hour.
  5. After the hour mark, gently scoop the icing over the cupcakes. You could pipe them too and back they go into the freezer.
  6. Before serving, keep them out for 5 minutes and serve :)
Notes
The dough is bit soft. It won't be very tough.
