Choc Berry Cupcakes with Avocado Frosting
Serves 12
(Vegan) food, glorious (vegan) food! Vegan, chocolate, berry cupcakes that are full of healthy ingredients and low in sugar, topped with avocado frosting that is as rich as Donald Trump claims to be (but far better for you) and as velvety as George Costanza's favourite pair of pants. I usually bake these when I have left over ripe bananas, and make them with gluten free flour for my gluten intolerant friends. Enjoy!
