Choc Chip Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Perfect for a celebration, my Choc Chip Peanut Butter Cupcakes are sweet, soft, moist, rich and totally delicious. They're easy to whip up and look fantastic as part of a morning tea or party platter, and in addition to being egg free, dairy free and vegan, can easily be made gluten free too. Once baked they can be frozen until ready to serve, or stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
