 Maple Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Frosting

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was fantastic! Friday, my mom, sister and I spent the day making lots of holiday candy! 14 lbs of bark (white chocolate peppermint, white chocolate tangerine, dark chocolate peppermint and milk chocolate toffee), 2lbs of white chocolate pretzels, 3 lbs of holiday spiced pecans and 6lbs of holiday spice walnuts! Then we bagged it all up! It was an amazing day  but, after that sugar, I am in need for a healthy treat! These cupcakes are so healthy that you could eat them for breakfast! I hope you enjoy! Have a great start to your week!

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spray 6 muffin cups with nonstick spray*
  3. Whisk together your dry ingredients
  4. Mix together your wet ingredients
  5. Combine wet and dry ingredients
  6. Evenly divide batter among 6 muffin cupakes
  7. Bake for ~18 minutes. They will seem slightly underdone, but will continue to set once removed from the oven
  8. Make your frosting by combining all ingredients, adding milk in 1tbs at a time until desired consistency

  11. Store in a sealed container
  12. *I made these twice. First time using cupcake liners and second time spraying the tin. They stuck to the paper liners, so if you would like to use them, I recommend spraying the inside of a foil liner with nonstick spray.
