Chocolate (bb & yam) Cuppins!

on September 8, 2012

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.  🙂
