No-Bake Carrot Mini Cupcakes with Honey Vanilla Buttercream
Ingredients - “Buttercream”
- ½ Cup plus 2 Tablespoons of raw Cashews
- Juice of ½ a Lemon
- 2 Tablespoons of Canned Coconut Cream (unshaken so the cream and water are separated)
- 1 ½ Tablespoon of Raw Honey
- 1 ½ Teaspoon of Coconut Oil, soft but not melted
- ¼ Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Ingredients - Cupcakes
- 1 1/3 Cups of Raw Walnuts
- 8 Medjool Dates, chopped, plus more if needed
- 1/3 Cup of Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
- 1 ¼ Teaspoons of Ground Cinnamon
- ¾ Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
- ¼ Teaspoon of Ground Cardamom
- ¼ Teaspoon of Ground Nutmeg
- ¼ Teaspoon of Sea Salt
- 1 ¼ Cups of Finely Grated Carrots, patted dry
- For the buttercream: Soak the cashews in water at least 3 hours or overnight. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Combine the cashews, lemon juice, coconut cream, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla in a blender and begin blending on low. Slowly increase the speed until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate while you work on the cupcakes.
- For the cupcakes: Pulse the walnuts, dates, shredded coconut, coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor until the mixture holds together, about 3 minutes. If needed, add an extra date to help the mixture stick. Fold in the carrots by hand and combine well.
- Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners. Using 2 tablespoons per cupcake, scoop the batter into the liners and press firmly with fingers. Use a spoon to place a dollop of buttercream on each cupcake. Chill the cupcakes in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
