Chocolate cup cakes with creamy chocolate frosting (GF/vegan)

1 Comment


I have been craving chocolate cake lately so I gave in and made these yummy moist chocolate cakes. I added some beets too to give a little extra nutrition. The beet flavor is completely unnoticeable. I used avocados as a base for the frosting and it was so rich and creamy I kept eating it by the spoonful. My husband even approved and he is a pretty tough critic! If you want to make these grain free you can use buckwheat groats instead of oats.

Chocolate cup cakes

1/4 cup ground shredded coconut

1/4 cup ground sunflower seeds

1/4 cup ground gluten free oats (or buckwheat groats if you want grain free)

1 apple peeled

2 tablespoons coconut milk

1/4 cup water

1/2 small beet

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup honey or maple
