Everything-Free Chocolate Cupcakes by Feasting on Fruit 

Makes 6

Cupcakes

1 cup pitted medjool dates (about 12)

1 cup water

1 cup oat flour

1/4 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)

Frosting

1 cup pitted medjool dates (about 12)

2/3 cup non-dairy milk

2 tbsps cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

  1. Make the frosting first so it has time to chill. Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Chill for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  3. In a food processor, combine the dates and water. Process to form a paste.
  4. Add the cacao powder, baking powder, flour, and non-dairy milk. Process to combine. *Alternatively, you could blend the dates, water, and non-dairy milk in a blender and mix it with the dry ingredients in a bowl if you don’t have a food processor.
  5. Spoon the batter into 6 lined or oiled muffin tins. Fill them 3/4 of the way, and smooth the tops.
  6. Bake at 350F for approximately 22 minutes.
  7. Remove from the pan and let them cool on a cooling rack.
  8. Once they are completely cool, frost them with the chilled frosting.
  9. Store frosted cupcakes in the fridge.
