Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog.
When I was organizing a bake sale to raise money for children affected by the earthquake in Japan, one of my playgroup mother told me that her daughter was allergic to flour. That makes it very difficult for her to eat cakes, so I tried to bake something that she could eat that looked and tasted like every other sweets that is sold at a bake sale.
Yes, this cupcake is made from chickpea, and does not use any flour at all.
It is easy to make, just mix everything in the food processor and it’s done!
Just a quick warning before you start, it does contain eggs and nuts, so it may not suit children with egg allergy and nut allergy. Also, when you are purchasing chocolate, make sure that they are gluten free. You can buy gluten free chocolate at health food shops, so just give a quick check!
Ingredients (to make 10 regular cupcakes)
-1 can Organic chick peas (when drained, about 240g)
-150g gluten free white chocolate
– 3 eggs
-100g Organic raw sugar
-50g Dried Apricots
-50g Almond meal
-1t Aluminium free Baking powder
Step 1: Melt white chocolate in microwave, Heat the oven at 180C, Line baking tin with paper
Step 2: Mix all the ingredients in a food processor for 45-60sec, or until everything is combined, Divide the mixture into baking tin and bake on 180C for 15-20min, test with a skewer to make sure it’s cooked.
Much sweeter than what I usually make, but the taste was yum 🙂 For Yumi, I might cut out the sugar and add extra apricots and coconuts. You can prepare your own chickpea, you would need about 1 cup cooked chickpeas(240g). Hope you like this recipe 🙂
