Chocolate Cashew Mini Muffins (Vegan)
These cashew chocolate chip vanilla cupcakes may be totally vegan and gluten free but they’re perfectly sweet and moreish with a melt-in-your-mouth sponge and the creamiest frosting you could wish for. If you don’t believe me, just ask my mum and sister who devoured the entire batch themselves! Perfect for afternoon tea or as an indulgent sweet treat whenever you fancy one. Obviously gentle on the teeth too as they’re sweetened with natural sweetener. Better yet, the frosting can be whatever your heart desires!
