    Wink Healthy Brownie Cupcakes

    For those who pm'd asking for the reciepe ~ easier to share with everyone than answer all the pm's

    The recipe says to make them in a 8x8 but I do them in mini muffin tins cause A) best part of brownies are the 'edges' and this way everyone gets an 'edge' and B) just easier for serving kids in the 'small serving' and they feel like they get 'more' when they can have seconds and C) easy for freezing leftovers ~ lol if there are leftovers of this one

    BTW you can also shred zucchini or apple into this and use less honey to make them even moister and the kids do not even notice and does not affect the recipe turning out!

    Ingredients

    4 oz Unsweetened Chocolate, melted in 1 T Coconut Oil

    3 Small Avocados (or 2 Large)

    1/2 c Honey

    3 Eggs

    1/4 c Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

    1 T Vanilla

    1 T Coconut Flour

    1 t Baking Soda

    1/2 t Salt

    Instructions

    Puree the avocado flesh in a food processor. Make sure there are NO lumps left overÖas good as chunky guacamole is, I canít say that itís all that good baked into a brownie.

    Beat all remaining ingredients together with the avocado in a bowl with an electric mixer until really smooth and fluffy.

    Spoon batter into a greased 8◊8 baking dish.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out smooth.

    LOL ~ I hear ya .... the over processing with refined sugars gives chocolate a bad name .... but pure unsweetened dark chocolate actually has health benefits and antioxidant properties and is good for us in moderation

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
