INSTRUCTIONS

Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a standard12-cup muffin tin with baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all the cupcake ingredients until a creamy batter is
formed and no clumps remain.
  3. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, about ¾ of the way, and bake until 
centres are firm, roughly 22 minutes.
  4. Let the cupcakes cool before transferring to a wire rack and frosting.

Frosting:

  1. While cupcakes are baking, add all frosting ingredients into a food processor and blend until well combined and no avocado chunks remain.
  2. Transfer this to a piping bag or use a knife and spread it on to the cooled cupcakes evenly.
  3. You can also enjoy the frosting as a chocolate pudding and eat it as is for a delicious treat!
