Hope you like some Springy cupcakes from

Hello there let me introduce myself, my name is Pamela from Pamela's Heavenly Treats, where I make healthy desserts, mostly cupcakes and cookies. I am a wife, mother of 6, homeschool teacher and I have a small Healthy Cupcakes & Cookie business. Everything that I make is made with 100% Whole Wheat Flour and my secret ingredients. You will not know that you are eating healthy when you taste these treats.

You might be thinking healthy desserts, does that go together, and the answer is YES.  You can tweak any recipe you have to make it healthy.  That is what I did, and my family loves every one of my healthy treats.  I don't even buy all purpose flour or granulated sugar anymore, I have replaced those two ingredients with whole wheat flour and light brown sugar.  I also make my own buttermilk *1 tbsp white vinegar and 1 cup of fat free milk, let stand 5 minutes there you have it homemade buttermilk.  I use fresh brown eggs for all my desserts, I dont know but they taste so much better, it has to be the EGGS! 
Since Spring is almost here, I thought why not make a tasty spring cupcake.
