Fruit and Veggie Infused Cupcakes via Fluffy Buns Bakery

Fruit and Veggie Infused Cupcakes at Fluffy Buns Bakery

When I first heard about the treats in which Fluffy Buns Bakery specializes – fruit and vegetable infused cupcakes – I knew my family would love to try them. Having a food-dye allergy in our family makes enjoying store-bought bakery items next to impossible, but not with these whole-food based treats!

The two Mom-friends (who also happen to be neighbors local in Orange County) who founded Fluffy Buns did so to give their children more choices when it comes to treats than the standard cakes laced with dyes and other unhealthy, unnatural ingredients.

These mini cupcakes made with real, whole fruits and vegetables.

Fluffy Buns uses all natural ingredients and everything about the cupcakes – color, taste and texture – is derived from the fruits and vegetables with which they are made. Chatting with founders, Karen and Ingel, you can tell that they are serious about keeping their products true to their claim. They filled me in on how they found that dark pink dragon fruit gives a beautiful (and best of all food-dye free!) bright pink, and their search for the perfect green color from green tea leaves found in specialty and health stores. Their Strawbeety cupcake even includes chia seeds to give it that authentic texture of strawberry seeds while adding a little extra nutritional boost!

As a family we enjoyed sitting down and taste testing six different flavors, and I’ll tell you, a favorite was a toss up. Every flavor was bursting with the natural flavor of it’s ingredients.  While still treats (i.e. you can’t get away with calling these a healthy breakfast), I think they are the perfect alternative when looking for a treat that is still a bit more wholesome and a lot less chemical ridden than the rainbow colored frosting on most cupcakes.
