Firstly, these look a bit haphazard as I couldn’t wait to eat them so didn’t bother getting a spoon/piping set & just smeared it on with a fork!
I whipped up this delicious, citrus baobab frosting (in less than 2 mins) which tastes amazing plus it is packed with Vitamin C & antioxidants!

The frosting is super easy and takes 2 minutes to make. I’ve also updated this recipe to include a beetroot juice option which is less citrusy for those who don’t like it too tangy.
Frosting for 6 small cupcakes:
-Juice 1 lemon into a bowl (or 50ml beetroot juice)
-Add 2 generous Tbspn (18g) of baobab powder
-Whisk this in until a thick mix forms, if you’ve made it too thick then add some melted coconut oil (or even add some of it anyway if you think you’d like the taste a bit creamier) then spread on your cupcakes.
If this is too citrusy for you then a slightly different recipe is:
-2 Tbspn melted coconut oil
-2 Tbspn water
-10 to 15g baobab (depending on how thick you want the frosting)
I quite like this sweet yet tangy citrus taste as it cuts nicely through the muffins I made that contain cacao which can sometimes be overpowering but the frosting blends brilliantly with it.
For 6 small cupcakes
*1 Tbspn milk/water
*1 teaspoon cacao powder
*2 Tbspn shredded coconut
*1 & 1/2 Tbspn chia seeds
*1 Tbspn Miracle matcha health mix in (if you don’t have this then use ground flaxseeds/chia seeds)
*1 heaped Tbspn (approx 30g) spelt flour (or any other flour) & 1/2 tsp of baking powder
Whisk all the ingredients together and pour into silicon muffin moulds and bake at 160C for about 20mins. Let them cool slightly before smearing on the frosting & enjoy!
