Cupcakes are just boring ol’ muffins without a lucious icing, don’t you agree? But said such lucious icings are usually loaded with butter and sugar, which, on occasion, is delightful, but not exactly healthy. So I wanted to master a healthier frosting recipe for everyday use. After all, cake ‘everyday’ sounds pretty sweet, right?! This silky and sweet frosting uses soaked cashews as the ‘butter’ base and is lightly sweetened with Medjool dates & stevia. The sweet exotic flavours of Medjool dates, honey, almond & rosewater pair beautifully in this Middle Eastern-inspired sweet treat. Enjoy!
2 large eggs, separated
¼ cup grapeseed oil
½ cup of liquid honey
1 tablespoon of rosewater
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 ½ cups of almond flour
½ teaspoon of sea salt
½ teaspoon of baking soda
Cashew Cream Frosting Ingredients
1 cup cashews (soaked for at least for 1/2 an hour)
Juice and zest of 1 large lemon
5 Medjool dates, pitted
7-15 drops stevia (depending on sweetness desired)
Pinch of salt
Nutrition Bite: Cashew nuts – Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil.
