I’m not one for fiddly recipes that require a lot of measuring and fussing. Like frosting….if it involves whipping things with a mixer or using egg whites and cream of tarter…I’m out!
This recipe was actually my husband’s brilliant brain child! I made some vanilla gluten free cupcakes (with some leftover bulk barn GF cake mix) and they needed some pizzazz. He said – why don’t you just zip up walnuts and maple syrup in your food processor? So I did. And it’s delicious. Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated 🙂
(Make enough for 12 cupcakes)
1/2 cup raw walnuts
2-3 tbsp maple syrup, or to taste
Pinch of salt, optional
1. Blend up the walnut in the food processor until finely ground.
2. Add the maple syrup and blend until well incorporated. Mix by hand if needed.
3. Spread frosting over top of cupcakes!
