Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes

These are my husband's new favorite dessert. He has asked me to make more of these on several occasions. {Which is saying a lot due to the fact he usually isn't a big chocolate fan.}

I originally got the idea from some chocolate avocado doughnuts I pinned on Pinterest.

1 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour        1 Mashed Avocado

1/3 C. Cocoa Powder                 1 C. Vanilla Almond or Soy Milk

1 tsp. Baking Powder                 3/4 C. 100% Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp. Salt                                  1 tsp. Vanilla
                                                     1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
In two separate bowls-
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients.
Combine and fold together.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 22 mins
*We use a convection oven and they take approx. 17 mins

They are fantasic alone but if you are looking for a "frosting" Mix natural peanut butter and a smudge of honey and dollop on top.

Malarie's Week One!

It's been one week since my Mr. and I started the 100 day real food challenge together. We have already found that prepwork is the key to success. It has been really fun for me coming up with new recipes and spending more time in the kitchen. I feel less bloaty and have more energy than usual. My Mr. ripped some tentions in his foot last week so no workouts have happened yet, but we are soo excited to start working out hard together and starting on the second part of our challenge.
