Clean-Eating Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

When it’s time for dessert, I want dessert—not some tolerably tasty, veganized version of the cookies, cakes, brownies and ice cream I used to love. If you eat healthy most of the time, it’s OK to indulge every once in a while, right? With this recipe, your sweet tooth gets the best of both worlds. Clean, whole food ingredients combine to create sinfully sweet, moist mini cakes, complete with frosting that can be piped on prettily for an elegant, bakery-treat feel.
