Here’s another great idea for a lunch box snack! Test and tweak it to make it your own! 🙂
My beautiful aunt sent me a recipe a couple of weeks back and I made two attempts to turn it into a vegan recipe … no luck – YET!
So, we twisted it around a wee bit and this is what we came up with.
In a food processor…
- 1c of black beans (we soaked a bowl full overnight and cooked them to use for other recipes)
- 1/2c of dark cocoa powder (we use camino)
- 1/4c of steamed yam
- 1/4c of maple syrup
- 4 organic eggs
- 1tbsp of oil
- 1tbsp of ground cinnamon
- 1tsp of baking soda
Process all of the above until smooth and fill ten large muffin cups three quarters of the way full.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 – 22 minutes and enjoy!
These are by no means a sweet treat, but they are a healthy alternative to a full on yummy, sugary cupcake and you could easily top it with something that would make it a decadant dessert. 🙂
A little organic, 0% vanilla yogurt or a wee bit of organic (olympic) cream cheese would be very yummy with this! 🙂
Happy, healthy eating y’all!
PS – Cuppins are what WE call something that isn’t quite a muffin and something that could almost be a cupcake. 🙂
