Red Velvet Beet and Aquafaba Cupcakes

Instead of using food coloring for these Red Velvet Cupcakes I used beets which also make them more nutritious and moist. I also prefer substituting coconut sugar for the white which gave these cupcakes a more brownish color which I didn’t mind. They are really good – especially with a whipped topping and redcurrants.

Deep Chocolate Chickpea Cupcakes

These Deep Chocolate Chickpea Cupcakes are completely vegan – no dairy or eggs . They have nothing to lose though in flavor or texture. In addition they’re packed with protein provided by the chickpea flour, almond meal and almond milk. And they’re so easy to make, just combine and beat together the dry and wet ingredients. I whipped them up before breakfast and in 20 minutes they were out of the oven. And they’re healthy enough for breakfast too. Continue reading

Aquafaba Zucchini Lime and Pistachio Cupcakes

These Aquafaba Zucchini Lime and Pistachio Cupcakes are a spinoff of the Loaf cake I made recently. You can make 24 small or 12 large cupcakes from my original recipe. They bake so much quicker (15-20 min) and are easier to serve. Look up the Zucchini Lime and Pistachio Loaf on this blog and follow the same directions and tips. I skipped the honey this time and the flavor was perfect…..not too sweet. Continue reading
