Raw PB&J Cupcakes

Oooooooh yeh you know you love it!

Waste Free? YES.  Raw desserts are delicious, nutritious, and really easy to source waste/package free ingredients for.  There are lots of stores that will let you grind your own peanut butter, and will also likely stock the rest of these ingredients.

If you can’t make it to a package-free store – try as best as you can to buy in cardboard (go to a supermarket with bulk nut bins and just use mushroom bags… secret!)

Makes 10 Cupcakes

Strawberry Chia Jam:
1/2C frozen strawberries, thawed
1Tbsp Chia seeds
1/2 Tbsp agave nectar

Blend strawberries in a food processor or high powered blender. Mix in rest of ingredients into a bowl. Refrigerate until it firms up, approx 2-3 hours

PB&J Cupcakes:

1.5C rolled oats or quinoa flakes
1.5 C dates
1/2 C cocoa powder

Pulse ingredients in food processor until they come together as a dough. Add water (1/2 C) if necessary, as it depends on how dry the dates are.

Peanut butter frosting:
120g peanut butter
1 T coconut oil
1tsp vanilla essence/powder
1T agave nectar, or more if you like it sweet

Place ingredients in a bowl over fresh boiled water and mix until smooth. Spread over tops of cupcakes and refrigerate to set
