Mini Chocolate Cupcakes

INGREDIENTS (FOR CUPCAKE)
1 cup walnuts
1 cup + 2 Tbsp raisins
2 Tbsp agave nectar
1 Tbsp cacao butter, melted (or use coconut oil)
2 1/2 Tbsp cacao powder
1 cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
pinch sea salt

INGREDIENTS (FOR FROSTING)
1/2 cup mashed avocado
3 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Cacao Liquor, melted (or use bakers chocolate)
2 Tbsp cacao powder
1/4 cup agave nectar

INGREDIENTS (FOR SPRINKLES)
1/4 cup cacao nibs

INSTRUCTIONS (FOR CUPCAKES)
Combine the walnuts, raisins, agave nectar and cacao butter in a food processor and puree. Transfer to a large bowl and add in the almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder and sea salt, kneading together to combine thoroughly and forming a compact dough. (If dough is too dry, add a tablespoon or two of water. If it is too wet, adjust with extra almond flour.)

INSTRUCTIONS (FOR FROSTING)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree.

INSTRUCTIONS (FOR ASSEMBLY)
Use a mini muffin tin, and tuck a layer of saran wrap into a cup to use as a mold. Spoon in some of the cupcake dough and press firmly into the cup to form desired cupcake shape. Use the saran-wrap to remove the packed cake from the muffin tin, then peel away plastic. Frost the cupcake liberally with frosting and sprinkle with cacao nibs. Repeat for remaining cupcakes.
