Chocolate Almond Fudge Cupcakes

The Chocolate Almond Fudge Cupcakes below are based on another wonderful recipe from ‘Ani’s Raw Food Desserts’ (Almond-Goji Cacao Chip Cookies p117). These cookies are delicious just as they are, but I couldn't resist converting them to a cupcake with a chocolate frosting and a sprinkling of raw cacao nibs on top for a little extra crunch.

I tweaked the proportions of Ani’s original recipe to give it a softer, fudge-like consistency and only made enough for 2 cupcakes, which I totally regretted later on as they tasted amazing!

Cupcake mix:
3 heaped dessertspoons almond butter
2-3 dessertspoons raw agave nectar
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
½ cup almond meal

Handful of goji berries

1 dessertspoon raw cacao nibs

(Stir together in a mixing bowl).

Chocolate frosting (enough for 2 cupcakes):

¼ cup almond meal

1 tsp raw cacao powder

1 dessertspoon raw agave nectar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp water

(Stir together in a mixing bowl).
