Don't we all love chocolate? Oh man, I know I do! I am not going to lie, and mix that with peanut butter and some banana and I'm in heaven. I rarely indulge in cake-y things because I literally will eat it all if it's in front of me! Let's be real it's hard to feel good about yourself after eating a big piece of chocolate cake. Now, after making this recipe, I have a guilt-free delicious and rich dessert! This week I decided to make my friend Maggie some birthday cupcakes. I searched high and low for recipes that are clean and healthy. I couldn't find any that were chocolate-y (most were like apple or carrot). We all need dessert every once in a while, and I prefer mine rich and YUMMY. I made up this recipe, and kinda just was adding things here and there to make the consistency seem right. It turned out DELICIOUS I am so happy with it!
