Clean Chocolate Muffins with Peanut Butter Icing

9147_54_pages_06_956_588x448I’m finding it so hard to concentrate to write this now so I apologise if I’m a blubbering mess! As you all know we voted for the Marriage referendum yesterday. I’m sitting here today feeling so proud (and emotional) to be Irish as I scroll through my Twitter feed and see all the support and results coming through! Sorry to my twitter followers for the 1 million tweets that’s I’ve re-tweeted today but I can’t even explain how Happy I am right now! I was brought up to never judge anyone, that we are all humans and we should all treat one another with respect. I thank my parents for these amazing life lessons which I will also pass onto my children in the future and today we have made this country a better place for all future generations. Ireland I love you!!!

Why not celebrate with these delicious cakes today!

Icing

    • 1/2 cup peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup grassfed Butter
    • 3 tbsp, Maple Syrup
    • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
    • Pinch of salt

Method:

  1. In a food processor- pulse the almond flour, salt and baking soda.
  2. Pulse in Prunes and while the machine is running pour in the eggs/maple and vanilla.
  3. Transfer mixture to some muffins cases and Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes, place on a wire rack to cool
  4. Clean the food processor and combine the peanut butter and butter. Add the maple/vanilla and salt and mix until it’s thick and creamy.
  5. Spoon into a piping bag and when the muffins cool, pipe the mixture on top. Sprinkle with topping such as peanuts or cacoa nibs and enjoy!

Tips:

  • If you only want to make the cakes (without icing) I suggest adding 1/3 cup butter or coconut oil
  • The mixture can be turned into brownies by simply using a cake tin.
