Carrot Cake Yogurt Cupcakes

Monday, September 21, 2015

This week my meal plan is super similar to last week so I am not going to post a meal plan, but I need to share a recipe because it was fantastic! Even though the weather doesn't feel like fall, fall has arrived in my home this weekend! I am burning my pumpkin scented candles, fall decorating has begun and I have a fridge full of freshly picked apples and I am bringing pumpkin food back into my world this week. As far as I am concerned these are the things make fall...the weather will catch up, because I can't wait anymore!

Anyway, along with fall also comes carrot cake and I love me some carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I had a box of carrot cake mix in the cupboard and wondered if I could make carrot cake cupcakes the same way I made the strawberry yogurt cupcakes and guess what?? You totally can!




Ingredients

1 Box Carrot Cake Mix
1 - 100 Calorie Greek Vanilla Yogurt Cup
1 Cup Water
Topping - Cream Cheese frosting 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare pan. I used cupcake liners, but you could grease the pan.

Mix all ingredients together

Scoop into liners

Bake for 14-19 minutes.

Cool and top each cupcake with 1 TBSP of cream cheese frosting. 
I used Pillsbury frosting. 

Serves 18-24*
1 Cupcake & 1 TBSP frosting
4 Points +


*I was able to get only 19 cupcakes out of the recipe, but I had a cute helper who was helping herself to the batter! 


This is also another plus to the recipe, no raw eggs, so eat what you want! I may have been able to get a few more cupcakes in had I done it myself, but as long as you get at least 18 cupcake and up to 24, you will still be at 2PP for the cupcake. 

Finally, if you want to save yourself a point, I made one cupcake with the TBSP of frosting spread on, and one with a 1/2 TBSP of frosting melted and then drizzled on and both ways it was delicious, but the drizzle is only 3PP total! 

You can find the rest of the yogurt cupcakes I have tried below:


What is your favorite cake flavor? Let me know and maybe that will be my next experiment! Hope you have a great Monday! See you tomorrow for Litcher Moments!

  3. I've been in the "Pinterest recipe" mode lately, mostly looking for healthy spins on delicious recipes. These look like a fairly guilt-free option I'll have to try.

  4. These sound so good, I love carrot cake! I also love when batters don't have the raw egg so I can eat as much as I want... okay, who are we kidding, sometimes I do that anyway.
