The Hidden Healthy: Apple Banana Carrot Cupcakes

June 19, 2017

With Ramadan almost coming to an end, the whole family has started to get a little bored of soups, hearty dishes and extra sugary desserts. Having a few uneaten fruits laying around, I decided to switch gears with an untraditional Ramadan dessert that my husband ate before my toddler got a chance to try them. Packed with fruits and carrots, these cupcakes are super moist, airy and delicious!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Baking time: Approximately 45 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean)

  • 1 mashed banana
