raw chocolate cupcakes

Inspired by For the Love of Food, I whipped up my own version of some raw chocolate cupcakes the other day. These are the most decadent and rich 'healthy' cupcakes you will ever consume. They melt in your mouth and are so full of flavour it's hard to stop at just one.

Ingredients
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbs cocoa powder
2 tbs maple syrup
6 pitted dates
pinch of salt
sesame and chia seeds

icing-
1 avocado
2 tbs cocoa powder
2 tbs maple syrup

Directions
Grind the nuts in a food processor until they resemble crumbs
Add dates, cocoa powder, salt and maple syrup and process some more until they mixture resembles a thick doughy batter
Line mini muffin pan with sesame seeds and chia seeds (this helps them to come out easily) and then press the batter into each mould.
Push the cupcakes back out again

icing-
Puree all three ingredients to combine into a creamy icing. If you can whip them a bit after pureeing. Dollop on top of cupcakes.

These remind me of a healthier version of rum balls. Sounds quite yummy! They look like a great addition to the lunch box.
