Date Chocolate Cupcakes w/ Date Chocolate Frosting

The cupcakes were hard, next time I shouldn't could them as long... The frosting was awesome!  It would have been Whole Food Plant Based, if I didn't add powdered sugar because my sweet tooth isn't satisfied with dates.

Cake:
  • 1 cup medjool dates.
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
Frosting
  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • 1/2-2/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • pinch of salt
1.  Mix all the cake ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Don't cook too long!  Watch closely.  Cool completely.
2.  Mix all the frosting ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Frost cupcakes when cooled.

Note: It made 7 cupcakes, but enough frosting for 10.  Therefore I have listed the nutrition for the cupcakes and the frosting separately.  Also, I might make the frosting again, but I'm not sure about the cupcakes.
