This one I made it for my wife on her first Mother's Day!! She is a wonderful woman who deserves the best gift!!! Yet this year the budget was low plus I prefer to create a gift than buy it! Plus I know, if is chocolate she will love it! (and I'm pretty sure almost every woman out there is the same!) So I put my creative cells to work and voila! A wonderful, healthy and tasty chocolate cupcake gift for my wife on her special day! And now I share it with you...
INGREDIENTS: Yield 6 servings
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal

- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 counts of eggs replacer

STEP 1: Preheat the oven at 350º F
STEP 2: In a blender place all the ingredients and blend till you achieve a smooth creamy batter. When you are done place the mix into a cupcake sheet.
STEP 3: Bake the mix in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes until its completely cook. (Tip! how to test it?
take a bamboo skewer and insert in the center of the cake, if the skewer comes out "dirty" then it needs more
cooking time, if it is dry and clean, tadaaa! then it's ready)
STEP 4: Once is done, place a side to cool it down and decorate as you wish!
