Disney's Frozen Inspired Sugar-Free, Low-Carb Cupcakes for Baby's 1st Holiday or Birthday!

If there’s one time that I let things slide with our diet, it’s the holidays. We definitely consume more treats and cookies as a breakfast side are a common occurrence. However.

When my little ones were babies, I just wasn’t into giving them heavily food-coloured and sugar-laden treats, even though I really wanted to let them enjoy something delicious and yummy along with the rest of us. It was around that time that I got into low-carb and sugar-free baking. Aside from the health reasons of not wanting to load up my kids of sugars and white flours, I’m also not a fan of hanging out with toddlers hopped up on sugar!

This week in particular brings the beginning of our Christmas break from school and we’ll be taking Wyndham and Abby to see Disney’s Frozen! I made these cupcakes as a precursor to the big day and they were a hit!
