Superwoman Cupcakes


'A Perfect Contradiction' Paloma Faith
What a sexy cross section!
Men watch out... any woman who eats one of these will be full of more strength, energy and power!
 I've combined some super ingredients in these cakes making them guilt free, tasty and full of goodness. Plus who doesn't like Oreo's?  

60g unsalted butter
150g coconut palm sugar
1 large egg
20g cocoa powder
75g gluten free plain flour
75g quinoa flour
20g oattbran
1 tbsp coconut flour
20g fresh/frozen blueberries
140ml low fat Koko coconut milk
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 orange zest
1 tbsp lemon juice

1 fresh banana


Preheat oven 180°c
Whisk butter, sugar and egg until pale and fluffy.
Stir through flours, bran, cocoa powder, blueberries, seeds, orange and lemon.
Pour milk in small amounts until a smooth chocolate batter is formed.
Add bicarbonate of soda then vinegar on top. Stir everything once more and scoop into twelve muffin cases.
Chop banana into small chunks and stick one in the middle of each muffin case.
Bake for twenty minutes, when you no longer see any bananas and they are well risen then they are done.

Leave to cool.

1 large ripe avocado
1 tbsp coconut oil
100g  85% Green and Black's chocolate
Oreo's cut in half.
Maca powder
Chia seeds

Melt chocolate and coconut oil separately. Whisk together and dip Oreo halves in sauce. Freeze these for ten minutes.

Use the rest of the sauce by combining it with mashed avocado. Whisk well until all green lumps have gone and pipe on each cake.
Sprinkle maca powder and chia seeds.
Top with Oreo.

Remember don't beat yourself after treating yourself.

Not everyone can stay on top of eating healthy without wanting a chocolate bar or diving into cheeseburger every now and then.
Listen to your body.
