Introduction

These little beauties are so tasty you won’t be able to stop at one! It’s fun to play around with these vegan chocolate cupcakes – why not experiment with different flavours when you make your icing? Try adding raspberries or pineapple.

They will keep for up to a week in an airtight container un-iced. Only ice when you’re ready to use.

Method
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees and line a cupcake mould with cases.
  • In a blender or NutriBullet mix together the bananas and yoghurt.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together the coconut sugar and coconut oil using an electric whisk. Keep going until the mixture becomes visibly lighter and airier.
  • Now mix in your flour and baking powder, followed by the cacao powder. When evenly folded in add the banana mixture.
  • Chop your chocolate into chunks and fold into the mixture.
  • Place the mixture into your cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until springy to touch and a skewer comes out clean.
  • Whilst the cakes cools whisk together your icing ingredients.
  • Once the cakes are cool pipe your icing on in whatever pattern you wish! HINT: Icing can take a bit of practice, so if you are looking for perfection, practice the icing on a plate or something else first!

*Please check the dark chocolate is dairy free / vegan. Most dark chocolate which is 70% or more cocoa is vegan but it’s worth checking.
