This recipe for bran cupcakes is perfectly sweet and healthy.  They are packed with fiber from bran flakes and whole-wheat flour.  This makes them filling and satisfying.  There is also very little fat in this batter so it is still a light dessert.  That is not all – these cupcakes are full of bananas and blueberries.  Bananas provide a good amount of potassium and blueberries are a powerful antioxidant brain food.  Sweet, satisfying and full of vitamins and nutrients – what can make these cupcakes better?

Another great ingredient in this recipe is the ricotta cheese.  This is the main ingredient in the frosting.  It has a bland taste that absorbs the flavorings you use on it.  That is why it is used in both savory and sweet recipes.  I love it because it is low in fat and has a creamy texture.  It is also great to use because it saves time from whipping up a traditional frosting.  If your frosting is too creamy, you can stiffen it by putting it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.  Remember that ricotta only keeps for a few days, so frost your cupcakes right before you serve them for the freshest taste.  You can also top your cupcakes with candy eggs, sprinkles, grated coconut or fresh fruit – use your imagination.

As you can see, eating healthy does not mean missing out on holiday treats and desserts.  All you have to do is choose the right ingredients to make your meals healthy.  This yummy cupcakes recipe is a great way to have your cake and eat it, too.  They are the perfect serving size to enjoy a sweet treat without going overboard.  They are healthy from top to bottom so you can eat and share these delicious Easter treats without regret.  Make this recipe for your next Easter gathering for a yummy dessert that both kids and adults will enjoy.
