Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

I have been on a bit of recipe mission for healthy kids snacks, so I tried this vegan chocolate cupcake recipe today and although it is slightly heavier than your usual cupcake, it does have an avocado hidden amongst the chocolate so it really is a healthy cupcake alternative 🙂

So here’s an idea for afternoon tea Anna.

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

method

  • preheat oven at 180 C / 350 F
  • sift flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder together in a medium bowl

  • mash up avocado and mix with vegetable oil, milk, sugar and vinegar until combined
  • add flour mixture to oil mixture and beat for a few minutes on medium speed until smooth
  • fill cupcake papers about 3/4 full and bake for about 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
  • for the icing, just mix 1 cup icing mixture, 2 tablespoons cocoa and a couple of tablespoons of hot water and combine until smooth and spread over cooled cupcakes

Let me know if you try them out, I’d love to hear your opinion on them.

Enjoy and have a fabulous day , hugs ♥
