Easy, Healthy, Gluten Free Carob Cupcakes Recipe

We recently had the gorgeous and grand Children's Fair ~ the primary fundraiser at our beautiful school.
I made two recipes to donate to the Children's Stall:~
Gluten free Organic Carob Cupcakes
As these are both two of my very popular dessert recipes, I thought I'd pass the recipes on to you (in 2 separate posts), to make for and share with your friends and loved ones 

Not too many ingredients - really easy!

A few things to keep those little fingers occupied as they 'help' in the kitchen.

I'd like to start this recipe by saying, the original recipe is here.
I have altered it to suit us though, so it's up to you which you'd prefer to follow.
Gluten free Organic Carob Cupcakes
1/2t  Gluten&Aluminium free baking powder
25g   Carob powder
100g Almonds, ground (I find it easier to locate organic almonds, than organic almond meal)
50g   Grapeseed oil
100g Maple syrup
3        Eggs (we always choose organic/home grown)

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Place 10  paper cases into a (12) muffin tin.
Sift the baking powder and carob powder into a large bowl.
Add the ground almonds and mix well.
In another bowl, whisk together the oil, syrup and eggs.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together until completely combined.
Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, dividing more or less evenly into each one.
Bake for around 20 minutes. Or until they're firm, though spongy in the centre.
Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack and leave to cool.

You can decorate them  with fresh fruit or a spread if you wish, once cooled. But at our house, they're generally always devoured while still warm!


  1. Yummm, they look just delicious ! I had no idea that Baking powder contained aluminum, that is just shocking !! Of course, not the baking powder that you have used, but probably the 'regular' kind you find in the supermarket! xxxx Love Aunty Mewwie xoxoxo Please give Mr Turtle and Pippi a big cuddle from us xxoxooxxo

  2. Cuddles are always passed on sweet lady. And returned in abundance! xxx
