Ok people, you better believe these are healthy. They are free from saturated fat, dairy and gluten. Plus they are high in fibre and protein. Did I mention that they contain a tin of black beans? Yet, they actually taste good! Loving it.
I stumbled upon these delights whilst looking for a cupcake recipe that used ingredients that were in the cupboard (read: did not require leaving the house to brave the freezing cold weather). The original recipe, namely “Not Your Usual Chocolate Cupcakes!” can be found here at Madhuram’s Eggless Cooking. I made a few changes- I used pureed dates instead of the prunes, and used rice flour instead of the usual wheat-based flour. Be warned, these are filling. Even Tom struggled to eat a whole cupcake (as a dessert). I think these babies could be a good breakfast cupcake since they are high in fibre and protein (we’ll ignore the fact that they are also high in sugar; it is the holidays after all!).
