Happy birthday to you! OK| so maybe it’s not your birthday| but it’s somebody’s birthday somewhere| so there’s a good reason right there to immediately bake a batch of these chocolate cupcakes smothered with homemade chocolate frosting. And when you have your first decadent bite| you just might drop the rest of your cupcake when you realize that they’re low-calorie and totally vegan| plus the frosting is made with avocados instead of butter!
The healthy fats in the avocado make these cupcakes as healthy as a bowl of kale and bean soup! OK| maybe not that healthy| but healthy enough to feel good about reaching for more. Each cupcake offers almost five grams of fiber and is just 230 calories. A real-deal chocolate cupcake is 459 calories! That’s a crime when you can make these chocolate gems.
Be sure to use ripe avocados for the frosting.
