I found the recipe for these cupcakes in Runner's World. I love to make them to celebrate half-marathons - I tell myself the publication source makes them healthy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line muffin tins with wrappers.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and the wet ingredients in a second bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until fully combined. Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. Bake 20-25 minutes and cool.
  3. For the frosting, mix butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add in the confectioners sugar, slowly. Add in the vanilla extract. To pipe, spoon into a plastic freezer bag and cut a tip at the end.
  4. Frost cupcakes once they have cooled. Top with colored sugar to finish. Enjoy the anti-oxidant awesomeness!
