Dear Delightful Chocolate Cupcake,
While you might be guiltless (unless you eat the entire batch, which I would know NOTHING about), I am quite guilty. My guilt has nothing to do with devouring obscene amounts of your chocolaty-ness, it is guilt purely from my horrific photography skills. It seems I don't do well with the color brown :( You deserve a much better representation. While I snapped at least 20 photographs of your lovely self after Sophie's birthday party, I did not review them until the next day after all your cupcake friends had been devoured.
Your slightly enamoured, but shameful friend,
Do not let my photograph keep you from making these awesome flour-less cupcakes. They are by far the best, most moist and cake-like flour-less cupcake I have made. These actually taste like yummy cupcakes instead of dry chocolate hockey pucks AND they're said to only have 58 calories each! YAY! Enjoy :)
GUILTLESS CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES
Put in blender or food processor:
1 3/4 cups oats
3 egg whites
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 1/2 TBSP vinegar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup hot water
1 cup splenda
You will also need:
1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I chopped up a dark chocolate bar)
Blend until everything is smooth and creamy.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour into muffin cups.
Bake 10-12 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
I always store these in a container while they are still slightly warm and it keeps them very moist.
