{raw} spiced hazelnut cupcakes with chia pumpkin frosting

by Lori and Michelle on October 18, 2011

raw cupcake

well we have been a little frustrated over here. we were so excited to share our raw cupcake recipe, but when we went to edit the pictures half of our pictures were not there!!!

so after a moment of screaming and crying, we came to realize – at least we have some photos.

mostly the final pictures we do not have, so you will have to use your imagination with this one.

all we have is the one photo Michelle instagramed

we do apologize for lack of final raw cupcake photos, but promise they are delicious.

our raw hazelnut cupcakes were perfect! great light, slightly crumbly texture along with a kick of spice to it. if you like allspice then you will enjoy these cupcakes.

also we enjoyed the texture of  chia seeds in our pumpkin frosting. again you may use any frosting you like on top of these cupcakes. another great option for frosting is our lucuma cashew frosting.

overall these cupcakes are easy to make, simple while satisfying and rich in flavor.  want else would you want in a cupcake?

we forgot how fun it is to make raw cupcakes. it has been awhile since we have made one. we definitely see more raw cupcake making in the future!

that is all for today! maybe those lost pictures will show up somewhere haha

till next time,

oh no I’m so sorry that happened! After so much time and effort that’s such a bummer. Did you have any leftover that you could recreate a mini photo shoot with? The photos you did manage to take are gorgeous though!

Lori and Michelle October 18, 2011 at 11:33 am

Katie that is a great idea, and thank you!

Erica October 18, 2011 at 1:31 pm

These look like so much fun! I love the idea of using hazelnut flour. Y’all are so creative!

Aw, that sucks! I’m glad you got some pictures though because those are super cute! I’m particularly interested in these because we actually have hazelnut trees in our yard so we always have a ton of them. I’ve never even seen Irish moss though so that will hold me back, haha. After checking out your other post on it I’m super curious about it :) I think coconut would be yummy too though.

YUM! We have similar posts today!

I’m sorry about your photos!!! Are they on your camera (like if the sim card came out a bit…? does that make any sense?) So frustrating! But what awesome pics you still got!!

This looks fantastic and sounds perfect to take to a monthly raw potluck in my area? How long do you soak the nuts before making the flour?
