Freedom Friday: Molten Chocolate Cupcakes

May 9, 2014

Chocolate, as cliché as this may sound, cures many emotional ills and is an ultimate comfort food. Looking for a non-flour-y and allergen-free way to impress mom this Sunday for brunch or even with an ice “cream” sundae?! These half-baked, gooey molten chocolate cupcakes are easy, allergen-free and sure to please everyone. Dress them up with a delicious sugar-y frosting and chocolate chips or serve plain with fresh strawberries as an incredible and sort-of well-balanced breakfast alongside a huge mug of coffee! For Mother’s Day, show your mom how lucky you are to have her in your life with these delicious, cakey cupcakes. Shout-out to my awesome, vegan mama…I love you!
