Who's up for some cupcakes?

Health is not only about diets and guilt. Health is also about having fun and a love of life and the body.

That's why I'm sharing these healthy colourful cupcakes with you today!

They are from my book, Raw Cakes.

Raw Chocolate Cupcakes

Makes approx. 6 large cupcakes

  • 450g nuts, e.g. almonds
  • 60g raw cocoa powder
  • 125g date paste (see below)
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder


Date paste for cupcakes is made by blending approx. 165g dates with 2-4 tbsp almond milk or coconut milk. The coconut milk can be replaced with water and 1 tsp lecithin granules.


Grind the nuts finely in a blender or coffee grinder. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and fill the muffin forms in beautiful colours.

Basic Icing for Cupcakes

  • 2 tbsp lecithin granules
  • A little water to mix it all more easily

Blend all the ingredients to a soft and creamy consistency

3 flavour variations of icing

In the Raw Cakes book you can find 12 flavour variations, but here I'll give you three to start out with:


Blend 2 tbsp orange juice and 1 tsp grated zest of orange with basic icing. Add 1 ½ tsp dried turmeric to make the cream yellow.


Blend 100 ml goji berries previously soaked in water with basic icing.


Blend 2 tsp chlorella and 1 tbsp agave syrup with basic icing. Add 1 tsp turmeric for turn the colour vivid green (see photo!)

All the recipes here are from my book: Raw Cakes. You can buy it here.

The book is for people who want to live healthily, but also love delicious and inviting cakes.
