A couple of weeks ago I came across a recipe on Raw on $10 a Day (or Less) for Raw Molten Cupcakes which look incredible and I have not been able to get out of my head since. Tonight I was craving something sweet so I decided at 9PM that I was going to attempt to make the cupcakes and write about them to share. As I got started I realized that I was out of agave and that rather than a molten chocolate center I felt like a peanut butter cup so I switched it up quite a bit, but still wanted to give credit to my inspiration.
My version is not raw because I used Bee Free Honee and peanut butter. You could easily make it raw by substituting agave and raw almond butter or other raw butter. My version is also not molten because the peanut butter didn’t melt. If you wanted that molten affect you could add coconut oil. My version also has a kick of antioxidants because I added chia seeds.
You will need a cup cake time and three paper cupcake cups (I used unbleached.)
I put mine in a dehydrator and despite the fact that they didn’t become gooey inside they were good warm. If you don’t have a dehydrator you could put them in an oven at the lowest temperature, though if it is over 119 degrees they will not be considered raw. You could also eat as is, without warming.
In a cup mix chia seeds and water. They will need to sit for 15 minutes before adding them to the mix.
Make filling by mixing all ingredients and set aside.
Put 3 cupcake papers into cupcake pans. Press almond mixture onto the bottom of each cup and sides, leaving a well in the center and enough almond mix to cover top.
