Guilt Free Cupcakes, with coconut cream frosting or raw cacao frosting and cacao nibs!

We absolutely love this recipe by Feasting on Fruit, whilst the ingredient list is guilt free, they taste utterly delicious!

The recipe uses oat flour. As our oat flour is raw, our oats aren’t steamed during processing, it needs storing in the freezer to keep its natural oils fresh. You can buy our oat flour at the Kitchen Table.

DESCRIPTION

These healthy chocolate cupcakes are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, sugar-free, nut-free, and so decadent. The perfect guilt-free chocolate treat, and easy to make too!


CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE

  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates ((about 12))
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder ((or cocoa powder))
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk

CHOCOLATE FROSTING

  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates ((about 12))
  • 2/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsps cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM FROSTING

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk chilled overnight

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Chocolate Frosting: Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Chill for at least 2 hours.
  2. Coconut Whipped Frosting: Scoop out the solid part of the separated coconut cream. Whip till smooth. Sweeten if you want, I personally like it as is with just the natural sweetness of coconut.
  3. Cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 177C.
  4. Blend the dates and water until smooth. (A high speed blender works best, if using a food processor either wrap a towel around it before turning it on or add the water slowly to avoid date water spraying all over your kitchen.)
  5. Add the oat flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and non-dairy milk. Blend until well combined.
  6. Spoon the batter into 6 lined or oiled muffin tins. Fill them 3/4 of the way, and smooth the tops.
  7. Bake at 177C for approximately 25 minutes.
  8. Remove from the pan and let them cool on a cooling rack.
  9. Once they are completely cool, frost them with the chilled frosting.
  10. Store frosted cupcakes in the fridge.
