Serves: 12
 
5sp or 3pp each
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup white cake mix (you can add extra flour if you don't have cake mix)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 egg whites (1/4 cup)
  • ¼ cup vanilla 0% greek yogurt (or plain)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • ¼ cup sprinkles
  • For the pudding icing
  • 1 package fat free vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup fat free cool whip
  • 12 sweet heart candies (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular 12 hole muffin pan. I used cupcake liners but I am going to suggest that you don't as they did stick.
  2. In a bowl, using an electric mixer beat together your apple sauce, sugar and egg whites. Stir in your yogurt, vanilla and ½ cup of milk.
  3. Mix in your flour, cake mix, baking soda and powder. Fold in your sprinkles.
  4. Fill your muffin cups about half way, bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile make your pudding icing, whisk your pudding mix with 1 cup of milk, then add in your 1 cup of cool whip.
  6. Let cupcakes cool completely, then pipe your pudding icing out of a pastry bag or piping tool onto the cupcakes, top with a candy. Makes 12 cupcakes at 5sp each or 3pp. Best stored in the fridge.

    Can I use funfetti cake mix instead of white? And if I do then do I still need all those sprinkles? Thanks!

      Sure… and I would still add the sprinkles, one because the mix does’nt really have many and two, you can never have enough sprinkles lol..
