With the beginning of the school year I get to think up new ways of giving my kids healthy after school snacks, everyone loves a good cupcake and although I don’t want to give them too many I found a way to make some recipies much healthier, roll on the clean eating chocolate cupcake!
I have modified a recipe I had for chocolate cake to make it a much healthier option with lots less fat and sugar, it is clean eating for everyone! plant based vegan yumminess! they must be very good because I need to stop the kids at two each!… also they kind of look very ‘mushroom’ like… they love them!
Here is the recipe:
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup non dairy milk, I used soya but you can use any nut milk too
1/4 of melted coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of apple vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mixed all the wet ingredients on one bow and the dry ones on another, poor the dry onto the wet ingredients bow and fold the mixture until well combined, don’t over mix. I bake them on a preheated oven at 280 C (350 F) for about 20 minutes and that is it!
I hope your kids will enjoy these healthy after school snack as much as my kids do!

We have been thinking about vegan food, plant based food for a bit now. Theo my partner, is training for Triathlons and as a result we have been reading lots about nutrition and it seems that plant based is the way forward, I am still researching this lifestyle and trying some of the most amazing foods the plant based has to offer!, I am feeling very inspired when cooking again so I am really loving it!, in this post I am just showing you some of the beautiful food we have been enjoying recently…
It was my boy’s 8th birthday celebration a couple of weekends ago, and I baked 48 chocolate cupcakes! yes! 48! I made them vegan… why? cos they were amazing! most kids helped themselves to an extra cupcake… that normally does not happen!
There was a bunch of sprinkles left, so we decided to decorate some chocolate biscuits! (these disappeared pretty quickly!).
Anyway, let me know in the comments if you are interested in the recipe for the cupcakes and I will include it.
