St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes with a Secret Healthier Twist!

by Olfa Turki


These St. Patrick's Day cupcakes have a secret twist that makes them healthier than the average cupcake. Bet you won't guess what it is by looking at them!

I am by no means Irish, nor do I  have Irish roots but I love cooking and baking with my daughter. I find it is one of the best ways to keep her  from watching TV when she gets back from school. This week’s baking was all about Saint Patrick’s Day. We made these easy St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes. It was a great learning experience for her, as I discussed with her what this holiday means and why they celebrate. Teaching my children about other customs and cultures is important to me. I find it opens up their minds and will become more open-minded adults. At least, I hope so.
