Healthy Chocolate Cupcakes!

Good morning blog land! It’s been so long since my last post! I’ve been very busy with wedding things! It’s less than two months away and I’m so excited! On the weekend I finally had some time to bake a treat for myself and it was obviously something chocolate! I thought I would share it with all of you! This recipe has no refined sugar, is gluten-free and vegan. Enjoy!

Chocolate Cupcakes
Yield: 12

Cupcake:
1 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup cocoa (I used ruddy cocoa)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup palm sugar
2 tbsp grape seed oil
1/2 large ovocado
1 cup water
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Icing:
1/2 large avocado
2 tbsp cocoa
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F, oil or line a 12 cup muffin tin
Add avocado to a blender with oil, water, vanilla, and vinegar. Blend well.
Mix all dry ingredients in a stand mixer or mixer bowl. Whisk.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until a batter forms.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake for 26-30 minutes.
For the icing, mix all ingredients together in a small blender or use elbow grease to mash all the avocado and then add the other ingredients. Let cupcakes cool completely before adding icing. Store in fridge.

Enjoy this sunny tuesday friends!
