Carrot Cake Cupcakes {Vegan & Gluten-free}

Carrot Cake Cupcakes { #vegan & #glutenfree } I’m back! Sorry it’s been quiet around here again. I’ve been away from my kitchen and computer and was beginning to get baking withdrawal symptoms. Anyone else get that? The NEED , not just the want, to bake something?

Anyway, I hope these make up for my absense… These cute little cupcakes are 100% vegan, wholemeal, gluten-free, naturally sweetened and coloured and so so delicious! The cupcake itself is adapted from the carrot cake in Flying Apron’s Gluten-Free & Vegan Baking Book with a few minor alterations. It’s topped with a frosting made from cashew and coconuts, to create a sort-of-but-not-really cream cheese taste. Ok, so the topping isn’t really much like cream cheese at all but it’s the nearest I could come up with and it tastes amazing anyway!
