Whenever I come across a recipe for a healthy version of what is supposed to be a rich and delicious treat, I am always a bit wary. These little beauties however, are packed full of healthy ingredients and they absolutely blitzed the taste test with flying colours!
To see how easy it easy to make, check out the photos I took:
Servings: Makes 12 cupcakes (2 would be a good snack or treat)
- 1 1/2 cups of mixed raw nuts – I used about 1 cup of almonds and 1/2 cup of walnuts
- 1/4 tspn baking powder
- 3tbspn raw cacao powder
- 1/4 cup organic dark chocolate (70% cacao or more), melted (I did this over the stove – see below)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1-2tbspn organic honey
- 4 whole eggs
- 3-4tbspn unsweetened almond milk (if needed)
Easy to follow instructions:
Melt the chocolate – you can do it in the microwave, I prefer to use the stove.
Then, after blending the nuts, add to a bowl with the rest of the dry ingredients.
This is then followed by adding the chocolate, oil, honey, and eggs.
After it’s combined to the right texture, split it up between the patty cakes.
After that, place in a pre-heated oven and cook for about 10 – 15 minutes.
Once they’re baked, I’m sure you won’t need any more instructions!
In the coming weeks, I’m going to test out more recipes from different food blogs, and I hope to get the chance to even speak with a few of these talented people in person (and even interview them for the podcast!).
