Bats

Sugar-free, vegan chocolate cookies (if you’d like to make your own, you need to check this recipe out!) eyes can be made using a bit of the coconut cream not mixed with cocoa powder and a bit of the cookie placed in the center. Or you can just use edible googly eyes.

Prep Time

10 min

DIRECTIONS

Muffin

Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners (use the fun Halloween themed liners for a little extra spooky in your holiday)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Mix together all dry ingredients (flours, coconut sugar, ¾ dark cup chocolate chips, cocoa powder, cinnamon, Sunwarrior Warrior Blend chocolate protein, and baking soda) in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (flax egg, coconut cream, coconut milk, coconut oil, and vanilla); whisk together until mixture is smooth.

Pour wet ingredients into the larger bowl of dry ingredients and stir until batter is blended.

Spoon batter into muffin tin (about ¾ full).

Sprinkle with remaining chips and put into over

Bake for 18-22 minutes. (use a toothpick to test if they're done)

Frosting

Stir cocoa powder and coconut nectar into the coconut cream

Bats

Frost muffins with chocolate frosting. Break chocolate cookies in half so the edges are a little ragged and place in frosting horizontally so “wing tips” are close to each other. Place two circles of white frosting for eyes and place two little cookie bits in the center of the whites. Or buy edible googly eyes.
