Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes


So, I generally like to stay away from refined sugar. Now I do have days of weakness when someones baked a cake and I just give in, but at home when I bake for myself I like to go refined sugar free. Last month, I got given a natural cookbook which is called Natural Baking it is all about baking slightly healthier. I saw this recipe for Chocolate cupcakes and decided to make it!

Here is the recipe: (makes 12 muffins)

Ingredients –

2 tsp cider vinegar.

200ml non dairy milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

60g coconut oil (melted)

320g slept flour

160g coconut sugar

6 tbsp cocoa powder

4 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

3 tbsp cold espresso

For the icing:

2 ripe avocados

2 ripe bananas

3 tbsp maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener

4 tbsp coconut il

8 tsp cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Peanut butter (optional but delicious!)


Preheat the oven to 180 oc. Whisk together the cider vinegar, milk and vanilla and set aside.  Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and add the liquid mixture, coconut oil and espresso. Stir until just combined.

Put in 12 cupcake cases in a muffin tray and bake in the oven for 18 to 23 minutes, until risen and a swelter come out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

To make the icing, pt all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until it is silky smooth. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before frosting.

(optional) Smooth over peanut butter on top f the cooled cake and frost anyway you want!



These are amazingly delouse! So you can enjoy these healthy cupcakes with little guilt!

Thank you for reading!!
