Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Hello!

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!)

Method:

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!

ENJOY!

 

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

Thank you for reading!!
