Cupcakes of awesomeness

I'm worried I'll forget how to make these little beauties if I don't write  the recipe down now! 

Adapted from this great food blog. 

  • 1 1/2 cups (170g) whole almonds (or almond meal)
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup (70g) desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 2tbsp ground chia seeds
  • 4 eggs
  • approx 50mL of milk (dairy free if you'd prefer)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g butter (or nuttelex if making dairy free), melted + 50g rice bran oil
  • Frozen raspberries to put on top (1/2 to 1 cup)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. 

Put almonds in blender / food processor and grind until fine. Add eggs, oil / butter mix first, then other ingredients except raspberries. If using a Blendtec blender, pulse a few times then run "batters and sauces" cycle. If using a food processor, process until it makes a smooth batter. 

Pour into lined muffin tin and bake approx 25 mins. 

My mix made 16 normal sizepd cucakes and 12 mini cupcakes.
