Okay, so y’all know I love the flavour combination of lemon and lavender. I’ve been making these lemon lavender shortbread cookies at Christmas time for years now! But I wanted something healthier, that I could still enjoy as a treat featuring those flavours. I thought about raw truffles, and raw cookies, but after digging up some lemon cupcakes from the freezer, and having my boyfriend compliment them profusely….I settled on raw lemon lavender cupcakes!
The base is nutty and sweet, with subtle lavender flavour. If you want to pump up the lavender, I’d use a full teaspoon of dried edible lavender. The ‘icing’ in this recipe is amazing…it’s a challenge not to just eat it by the spoonful! I want to top everything with the sweet lemon cream!
