Inspired by Ambitious Kitchen and EyeCandyPopper

Makes about 18 mini lovecakes ❤

The Red Velvet:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained) or 3/4 to 1 cup cooked chickpeas (If using dried chickpeas: rinse and soak dried chickpeas- saturate them fully in filtered water and cover.  Place in the refrigerator overnight.  Pour soaked chickpeas with soaking water into a pot and bring to a boil.  Once brought to a boil, reduce heat to medium and let simmer for at least an hour, add water as necessary.  Rinse and measure 3/4-1 cup.)lovebeets
  • 1/2 C almond butter (or any nut butter- I prefer unsalted)
  • 1/3 C natural sweetener (coconut nectar, agave, maple syrup, raw honey, try dates! 🙂 )
  • 1/3 C gluten free baking flour (try oatmeal, or whatever flour you like!)
  • 3 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/2 tsp humalayan pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking sodagfbakinflour
  • 1/3 C vegan carob or chocolate chips, or cacao nibs- might want to add more sweetener if using bitter nibs!)
  • 2 Tbs chopped walnuts
  • 3 Tbs beet juice 
  • 1 cooked beet
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (vanilla flavor is nice, I like almond milk)
  • 1-2 Tbs golden flax meal (dissolved in beet juice and non-dairy milk

The Rocky Road:

  • 1 T natural sweetener (optional- if using cacao nibs / unsweetened chips maybe)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional- if using sweetened chocolate chips, or to taste)
  • 2 T chopped walnuts
  • 1 T cacao nibs, carob, or chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line mini muffin tray with muffin liners (I really like the brand “If You Care”)
  2. In a food processor, add all ingredients except the chopped walnuts, and chocolate chips until batter is smooth.  Fold in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.  Super delicious to nom with a spoon just like this!!!
  3. Spoon about 1 Tbs of batter into each muffin liner.  Combine rocky road ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.  Dollop each lovecake with a touch of rocky road.  Bake for about 20 minutes.  May look underdone- but rather be moist and ooey than dried out! Also- no scary ingredients in here to worry about being undercooked! Can be eaten raw! 😀
  4. Let cool for about 10 minutes before indulging!
