10 Cupcakes That Won't Put on the Pounds


Zucchini bread is a tried-and-true way for Moms to sneak veggies into their kids' diets, and the same batter used for the loaves can be baked in muffin pans as cupcakes. Even though this recipe calls for prunes and whole wheat flour, these treats bake up moist and light -- and with healthful nutrition boost. If you want, you could lower the calorie count of the batter by using sugar substitute blend in place of the sugar. These cakes taste best when served warm.
