What can be better than a bite of healthy chocolate cupcake on Sunday morning?

The best choice to pick the healthy ingredients and make it by yourself.

Believe me, they taste even better than the regular ones, and they don’t make you sick. They keep your healthy and happy.

Enjoy the new recipe on my blog!!!!

To make the cupcakes:  Process oat flour and the other ingredients until it all sticks together. Press into lined cupcake tins and indent a thumbprint in the middle of each one for the vanilla cream. Put in the fridge. I used my silicone cupcakes liners and they worked great

To make the vanilla cream: blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Scoop a spoonful into each of the indents you made in the cupcakes. Put the cupcakes back in the fridge.

To make the chocolate frosting: mix together all the ingredients until smooth. Let it re-solidify just enough so that you have a frosting consistency. Frost the top of the cupcakes and then using a piping bag, decorate the tops of your cupcakes with the vanilla cream.

Carrot and Coconut Cakes with Chia Seeds.

I guess all the kids like muffins, cupcakes, cookies etc. Every time when I picked my daughter up from preschool she asks about muffins:) Once I got her a muffin as a reward to behave at school. I don’t really mind to eat them, but they need to have at least a few healthy ingredients and still taste good.

These Carrot and Coconut Cakes taste like muffins, or you can even use them as cupcakes, just make some frosting to put on.

They are healthy, gluten, dairy, wheat, grain, refined sugar free.
