Chocolate Cupcakes (with no refined sugar)

11 Jan

I promise I don’t exist solely off flour, but I do adore chocolate. As such I am forced to develop mechanisms by which to introduce chocolate to my mouth.

These are quick, easy and as the title implies, require no refined sugar.


4 bananas, mashed
1/4 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa
2 handfuls sultanas
2 cups flour
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup apple or orange juice


Mash bananas, mix in oil, add vanilla and blend. Then add sultanas and cocoa. Mix again before stirring in flour, baking powder, baking soda and finally orange juice. Bake cupcakes in cases or muffin tin. Eat plain or top with something sweet, such as fresh raspberry coulis, banana icecream or pure fruit sorbet.
