Today’s chocolate cupcakes are for all the true chocolate fans out there and lucky for you, there is a extra dose of chocolate in our silky, smooth drizzle.  You just can’t beat chocolate on chocolate.  Of course, you can make it even more decadent by piling on ganachefudge icing or fluffy buttercream, but for the sake of our waistlines, we’ll be sticking with the drizzle right now.  It’s perfectly delicious, without going overboard.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line mini muffin tin with cake liners
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine pumpkin puree, avocado, egg replacer, agave, coconut oil, coconut flour, cocoa powder & baking soda. Basically everything EXCEPT chocolate chips. 
  3. Blend until smooth then fold in chocolate chips. 
  4. Fill each mini-muffin tin with batter. * 
  5. Bake 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack. 
  6. While cupcakes are cooling, make your glaze, if using. In a glass bowl, melt chocolate chips and agave in 30 second increments in the microwave (or stove-up using double boiler method).  Whisk in coconut oil until smooth and shiny. 
  7. Place wire rack over parchment liner & drizzle tops of chocolate cupcakes with glaze.  

Notes

  • Because these cupcakes are grain free, they won't rise as much as if using flour.  Therefore, I filled my cupcake liners approximately 90%.

      I haven’t tried anything else, but if I had to, I would add more pumpkin puree in its place or maybe a mashed banana. I’d love to hear what you decide on and your results!

    I am blown away by how chocolaty these look! I haven’t tried the egg replacer, but it seems that it would be a great thing to keep on hand.

      It always produces great results and since we have multiple allergies, it’s a perfect substitute. I’m sure you can just make that 1 change to a real egg and it will work out just as well. Let me know

    Oh my word those sound amazing and so easy to make! I definitely need to try them. Do you think I could use a regular egg in this recipe?

      I’m sure you can use an egg instead of a replacer. Let me know how this turns out Kortney.

      Thanks Kristen. It’s the first I’ve added avocado in a cupcake and I’m so glad I did!
