Sometimes at Instructables HQ we have in house contests where we challenge each other to the best foods. This time around, we decided on cupcakes.
I chose to whip up a batch of awesome vegan raw cupcakes! these are easy to make and require no baking!
Step 1: Ingredients
These cupcakes have 2 main parts, "cake" and "frosting"
(For 6 cupcakes)
The cake is consistent of:
1 c. of walnuts
5 Medjool dates, pitted
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
2-3 tbsp of Cacao Powder or cocoa powder
1 tsp of Vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
and the frosting is:
1/2 c of Peeled Almonds
3 tsp of Agave Nectar
4 tsp Coconut Oil
Juice from 2 limes
Step 2: Making the Cupcakes
for making the cupcakes, i just threw all the ingredients in a food processor and waited till they where all stuck together. It took about 7 minutes, if your mixture is a bit to dry add a bit of water to get it going. You should be left with a tasty sticky chocolately mess.
Step 3: Frosting
For the frosting i used a blender. First i melted the coconut oil a bit to make it creamy and then put in all in a blender and let it whurl! took about 5 minutes to get the right consistency. If you don't blend it enough your frosting may be gritty.
Step 4: Frost Your Cupcakes
Next put your cupcake batter in cupcake papers and then cover them with tasty frosting.
Step 5: Chill and Serve!
to get them the right texture, chill them for about an hour and serve!
These are very tasty treats set to please any palette, vegan or not!
Hope you enjoyed these cupcakes!
