Healthy Cupcakes

I’m all for a birthday celebration and rewarding my kids with a sweet treat.¬†However, we all know how kids get after a whole bunch of sugar and I don’t have the energy for all of that. Not to mention, I want them leading a somewhat healthy lifestyle. I found a great cupcake recipe that is healthy and delicious… and they won’t even taste the difference! Enjoy!
