Recipe: Glazed Chocolate-Avocado Cupcakes

I was excited to receive Vegetarian Times' Everything Vegan cookbook recently as a gift. Although many of the recipes are available online, I really appreciate having a hard copy on the shelf so I can whip up a recipe at a moments' notice.

One of the recipes that immediately caught my eye was the mouth-watering chocolate cupcakes. I had some doubts about the inclusion of avocado, but I finally mustered up my courage and baked a batch. The results are in: these little cakes are delicious. The avocado keeps them moist for days and three separate taste testers fell in love! Read on for the link.

  • I used agave nectar in the place of the maple syrup, as it is cheaper
  • These cupcakes are rich and around 280 calories each
  • If you want to use up extra tofu/chocolate chips, consider this recipe and adjust ratios as necessary
