Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes are healthy and full of chocolate goodness!  In fact, I’ve heard they might even be more delicious than a real cupcake. They are full of clean ingredients and so easy to whip up!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place all ingredients in your blender. Blend on high for about 2 minutes to form a nice batter.
  3. Fill your cupcake liners 3/4 full.
  4. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes. (Check after 15 minutes. The tops should be firmer to the touch, puffed up similar to a soufflé. They may need 18 minutes.)
  5. Let cool on a wire rack.
Recipe Notes

You can store in an airtight container for up to three days. If you opted to bake six larger cupcakes, increase cooking time to 20–25 minutes.

Instructions
  1. Put the dates and vanilla paste in a food processor and run until a chunky paste forms.
  2. Add the almond butter and pulse a few more times.
  3. Add the coconut, cocoa powder, salt and cinnamon and pulse a few more times. The mixture should be a tad crumbly, but press between your fingers and stick together. If it seems too wet to hold in a ball, add more coconut. If too dry, add a touch more almond butter or a splash of water.
  4. Roll a heaping tablespoon of the mixture between your palms to form a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  5. Put your chopped almonds on a plate and roll each truffle in the almonds (apply a bit of pressure to get them to adhere).
  6. Place the plate in the fridge to chill for at least an hour. Truffles will keep covered in the fridge for a couple weeks.
Recipe Notes

Some dates can be super dry and hard, but for this recipe, you want to try to get your hands on some that are plump and slightly glossy, with no crystallized sugar on the surface. You can find quality Medjool dates at Costco, Trader Joe's, and HEB has this brand in the produce area: Bard Valley Natural Delights Medjool Dates. No added sugar, no preservatives.

The Vanilla Bean Paste can also be found at HEB in the spice isle. I use Taylor & Colledge Organic Vanilla Bean Paste.
