  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 banana
  • 100 grams apple sauce
  • two tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup (3 for the batter and 2 for the topping)
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (you can use the seeds of one vanilla bean instead) - ½ for batter, half for topping
  • 2 eggs (can be replaced by one extra banana or 150 ml apple sauce)

  • 250 grams strawberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Mash the banana and add apple sauce, maple syrup, milk, vanilla bean paste, egg and melted butter.
  4. Stir into the dry ingredients.
  5. Pour batter into silicon cupcake baking dishes (depending on the size 1-3 per person or serving).
  6. Bake for approximately 20 minutes (again, this depends on your baking dish size).
  7. Blend the cottage cheese, vanilla bean paste and maple syrup till it's smooth.
  8. Garnish your Cupcakes with topping and strawberries and enjoy!
The measurements of the maple syrup and vanilla bean paste are to be split according to the directions in the list of ingredients as they're for the batter and the topping.

The Cupcakes reheat well for a hot breakfast and do taste good cold, too! Simply store the topping in a tupperware container and garnish directly before eating.
