Sugar free, gluten free carrot cupcakes

Natvia kindly sent me some of their products to try out, if you have followed me from the beginning  you will know some years ago i tried to make a sugar free gluten free carrot cake and it was a complete failure. I always say that these kitchen fails means I'm forever learning with different kinds of baking and what works. I do have a amazing chocolate cake recipe in the works as well, I'm just undecided on the topping/frosting. 


Back to these delicious carrot cakes, they are packed with natural sugars although you would never tell from eating them. They passed the friend test, i held my breathe when my friend crammed one in earlier this week, asking her what she thought. She said not as sweet as normal cake but really delicious then asked why. I think she must have thought they contained some secret ingredient that i was not letting onto. Nope nothing surprising in these cakes, just all natural.

Makes 9 cakes;
1/4 cup buckwheat, almond and brown rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger 
1/4 natvia 
1/4 cup yogurt 
1/3 cup apple sauce 
1tbs oil 
1tsp vanilla 
1tsp apple cider vinegar 
1/3 cup sultanas finely chopped 
1 extra large carrot grated  

Preheat oven to 180 fan and line 9 cupcake places. Mix the dry together in a big bowl, then add in all of your wet ingrediants including the carrot and sultanas. Mix well, use a scoop to evenly place the mixture into the cupcake liners, this ensures they will bake evenly. Bake for around 18 minutes then check with a toothpick it must come out clean and the top of the cake must be springy. Remove and leave to completely cool. 

Topping; 
1/3 cup vegan cream cheese 
1/3 cup thick coconut yogurt (i used coyo and drained the liquid off first) 
1/2 teaspoon of natvia
1 teaspoon of vanilla powder (so it doesn't add any liquid) 
1 tsp coconut oil melted 
handful of walnuts crushed 

Mix cream cheese and yogurt with a hand mixer it whips up like frosting, have a taste if you have used a flavoured yogurt you may not need to add anything to it at all. If its not thickening up add in the coconut oil and place in the fridge. To serve place frosting on to cupcake and sprinkle with walnuts. 

If you do decide to make these delicious carrot cakes make sure to tag me over on Instagram, id love to see them!
