Halloween cupcakes that are just perfect!

pure2raw recipe: Brownie Pumpkin Cupcakes with Avocado Banana Frosting (gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free)

pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
in one bowl add in your brownie ingredients and stir till combined. set aside.
in other bowl add in your pumpkin bars ingredients and stir till combined. set aside.
grab your muffin pan and lightly oil with coconut oil.
begin scooping pumpkin batter into muffin pan first.
next scoop the brownie batter on top of pumpkin batter in muffin pan.
place into warm over and bake till toothpick comes out mostly clean.
our brownie top was still a little undercooked, so the toothpick had some brownie batter still on it. but we like ours a little under done.
Avocado Banana Frosting: (inspired from our banana avocado pudding)
- 1 avocado
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- splash of vanilla
- juice of 1 lemon
Directions: place all ingredients into a blender and blend till combined. then pipe or scoop frosting onto cupcakes.
*you could also use a small food processor or hand held mixer to make frosting.
to get the dip in the middle of the cupcakes, place the tip of the piping bag into the top of the cupcakes. squeeze and pull up as you continue to pipe frosting on to cupcake.
now who wants a cupcake?
the mix of the creamy avocado frosting with a chewy cupcake was like an explosion of flavors and texture in the mouth!
though what does not go well with chocolate, right?
Yep full of everything we love!
