Healthy Chocolate Cupcake with Raspberry Icing

It was my Maya's 1st birthday on Valentine's Day. I made her a delicious little cupcake. Can't take credit for this recipe .. I found it HERE.  Tiffany's recipe was perfect! The only adjustments I made was instead of a 1/3 of cocoa powder, I filled the 1/3 measuring cup with mostly CACAO and then a little COCOA (yes, there's a difference). This is one of the healthiest chocolate cupcakes I have ever had. With no added sugar (other than the maple syrup)the chocolate wasn't too sweet but the fruit puree icing gave it a refreshingly sweet twist. It was a crowd pleaser for sure! The baby devoured it!

A perfect kid-friendly birthday treat!
