And yet another sweet recipe. 


Yesterday I bought some sliced almonds, and I had smooth almond butter laying around. I put two and two together, and ended up making some cupcakes!


They look very cute, and I like the texture I gave them by adding ground chia seed, cinnamon and almond butter. You do not have to add the ingredients I just mentioned, and if you do want to skip them, you can follow the recipe I used as a base to create mine instead.

If you do wish to follow mine, tho, here is what you need:


I didn’t photograph the milk, so instead I just wrote the text! I hope it’s not confusing.

The recipe I made will create 6 regular size cupcakes.


Start by mixing flour and baking soda into a bowl. Set it aside.

In a different one, combine sugar and butter, using an electric mixer.


Then add the almond butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, egg, and vanilla + almond extract.

Mix everything together well, and then go ahead, and add the flour as well as the milk.


You will have a smooth consistency, ready to be poured into your tin.


Cook in the oven for 25 minutes at 170*C.


Now they are nice and puffy. Let them cool down, and if you wish, work on the icing.

I followed this recipe, it tasted absolutely delicious, but I may have added a bit too much soy milk cause the icing didn’t really hold its shape.


Nothing too bad tho, as when you remove the paper from the cupcakes, the icing melts down just a bit, looking kind of cool! 😉


I also added the sliced almonds on top, but you can use anything you prefer.

    I like how creative you are in the kitchen. Time for you to expand to more advanced recipes😜 I would love to try make these but since my sister has a nut allergy, all baking with nuts has been stopped. Are you open to desert suggestion from the Marzipans?

    So simple and sweet! It’s a great recipe, Marzia. I don’t know if you know this but you can actually use chia as the “egg” or binder in recipes–also flax seed! And it’s very simple actually. You just need one part chia (or flax) and three parts water. So, 1 tablespoon of chia and 3 of water. You can either grind them up (for flax seed, you definitely need to grind them up first) or leave them whole and mix them with the water. You can leave them in the fridge for 15 minutes and voila! Your eggs have hatched. I think for flaxseed you don’t even have to wait that long, just mix them until the consistency is somewhat eggy and sticks together. Haha it’s a great tip! I use it all the time. 🙂

    Hi Marzia!

    The cupcakes look delicious (and I bet they were!)
    I just wanted to say that I really enjoy watching your videos and reading your blog posts and that I look forward to every single one – Thank you so much for making them and keep up the good work! c:

    I hope your last interior design-assignment is going well and that you are enjoying the snow. Unfortunately, here in the Netherlands most of the snow has disappeared already. Hopefully it will start snowing again next week 😛

    Have a good day!

    For those who are vegan: the egg can be replaced with a tablespoon of finely ground flax seed mixed with three tablespoons of water!
