Chocolatey S’mores Cupcakes

Chocolatey S’mores Cupcakes

(makes 6 cupcakes)

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup water

1.5 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup applesauce

marshmallows

graham crackers

preheat oven to 350

mix wet ingredients together

sift dry ingredients into to wet mixture. mix until batter is smooth.

bake 15-17 minutes (take them out before they are completely done, the broiler will bake them a tiny bit more)

once cupcakes are finished, slit two lines in cupcakes with a knife. place two (or as many as you can) marshmallows in each slit, and a couple more in between. basically, as many as will stay on. for me, it was 6. place under broiler until golden. make sure to keep an eye on them, never look away! you want them to get golden and melty. crush two graham cracker sheets and sprinkle over top. eat & enjoy!

These are really dense chocolate cupcakes and sooo good. If left over, make sure to heat before eating and add more marshmallows if they fit!

In a separate bowl, mix milk, yogurt, vanilla and agave together

Slowly stir dry into wet (or wet into dry), fold in blueberries, chocolate chips and walnuts if you are adding them.

This Week’s Weekly Challenge: Exercise Daily

I’ve been crazy busy the past couple weeks and have not been making exercise a priority in my schedule. This week I want to change that! I will be doing some form of exercise everyday, whether it’s for 10 minutes or an hour. I think it’s really important to always put some time in your day to workout, not only for your health, but to make you feel good! I’ll be posting my workouts everyday to keep record. You’re all welcome to join me!

Questions:

What’s your favorite kind of muffin? 

How are you celebrating National Blueberry Muffin Day?

How do you find the time to schedule workouts into your busy life?
