Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (ripe)(best for keto) or 1 ripe banana
  • ½ cup nut butter or homemade sugar-free nutella
  • ¼ cup sugarfree agave syrup + 1 tsp granular sugar-free sweetener if needed
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp melted chocolate (semi-sweet, vegan)(optional)
  • ½ tsp baking powder+ ¼ tsp baking soda (avoid if gluten-free)(Check notes for gluten-free options)

Icing:

  • ½ cup semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips/chunks
  • 2 tbsp almond milk/coconut milk

Topping:

  • 2 tbsp vegan cocoa nibs

Instructions

Prepare the fruit:

  • If using avocado, then take one ripe avocado.
  • Remove the seed.
  • Take the pulp in a blender.
  • If using banana, peel and cut into small pieces.
  • Take the fruit pieces in a blender.

Prepare the batter:

  • Add 1/2 cup of nut butter of your choice or ½ cup of sugar-free homemade Nutella.
  • Add 1/4 cup sugar-free agave sweetener, two to four tablespoons of almond or coconut milk(depending on how ripe the fruit is) and 1 tbsp cocoa powder.
  • Add oil and blend to make a smooth puree.
  • Now taste and add more granular sugar-free sweetener if needed.
  • Mix in two tbsp melted vegan chocolate(if using nut butter add chocolate, in case of Nutella you don’t need extra chocolate), and 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda.
  • Mix well and pour the batter into each cupcake molds

Bake

  • Bake the cupcakes for 10-15 minutes.
  • Check if the cupcakes are cooked in the center.
  • If not, cook them for 5 more minutes.
  • These cakes take no longer than 20 minutes in the oven to cook.
  • allow the cupcakes to cool down.
  • Add chocolate icing and top with cocoa nibs and serve.

Notes

NOTE:
  • You can add an egg, one chia egg or flax egg, or a tbsp of aquafaba too.
  • I made this cake without any of these, and it worked fine.
  • Adding an egg or egg replacer will make the cake fluffier.
  • I kind of like a little soft and gooey cake like the texture of a brownie.
  • Adding icing is totally optional.
  • Add some chocolate chips to the batter if you would like the cakes to be more chocolatey.
