Why Choose Vegan Desserts?

Vegan desserts offer a wide range of benefits, including being cruelty-free, better for the environment, and often healthier than their non-vegan counterparts. By using plant-based ingredients, you can create desserts that are just as delicious and satisfying as traditional desserts, but with the added bonus of being vegan-friendly.

The Ingredients You'll Need

Makes 3 Grip Cups |Ā Prep 30 minutesĀ 

To make Vegan Choco Peanut Butter Mud Cakes, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp flour (all-purpose or gluten-free)
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 4 Ā½ tbsp coconut sugar
  • Ā¾ tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp overripe banana, mashed (equivalent to 2 small bananas)
  • 125 ml (Ā½ cup) rice milk
  • Ā¾ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds (optional)
  • Melted dark chocolate (optional)

These ingredients are easy to find and can be customised to suit your taste preferences.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven: Start by preheating your oven to 180Ā°C (350Ā°F) and setting aside three We Might Be Tiny Grip Cups.
  2. Prepare the batter: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cacao powder, coconut sugar, and baking powder. Add the mashed banana, rice milk, and vanilla extract, and stir until well combined.
  3. Fill the Grip Cups: Divide the batter evenly between the three Grip Cups, making sure not to fill them more than halfway as the cakes will rise significantly during baking.
  4. Add peanut butter: Spoon a teaspoonful of peanut butter into each cup, and if desired, sprinkle over a few chopped almonds.
  5. Bake the mud cakes: Place the Grip Cups in the preheated oven and bake for around 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the centre of one of the mud cakes after 20 minutes, then every couple of minutes until the toothpick comes out moist and fudgy or until you reach your desired consistency.
  6. Serve and enjoy: Remove the mud cakes from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving. For an extra indulgent touch, drizzle melted dark chocolate over the top before serving.
