Delicious one bowl chocolate cupcakes that take a few minutes to make with just a few basic healthy ingredients. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that cocoa which comes in the form of cocoa powder and dark chocolate can improve heart health, lower blood pressure and reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. When choosing cocoa powder or chocolate to eat, make sure to choose the dark variety as it has a higher antioxidant content than milk chocolate. I’ve used almond meal in this recipe which makes these cupcakes deliciously moist with a lovely crumb and the macadamia nut oil adds a lovely sweetness and full of good heart healthy mono-unsturated fats. You can also use olive oil or almond oil in place of macadamia nut oil if you prefer. These cupcakes keep well for about 5 days and can be eaten warm or at room temperature. I love these topped with smashed berry sauce or topped with my home made chocolate and macadamia nut nutella.
