Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes


If you love a Chocolate cupcake then you will just love these! Considering they have no stabliser’s like flour etc. they really do taste like a proper Choclate cupcake! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do and my little Munchkin!

Makes 12 Cupcakes.


4 wheat biscuits (weetabix) or 1 pack of Scandinavian Scan bran. I only use Weetabix!

4 eggs.

2 tsp of vanilla extract.

2 tbsp of cocoa powder.

10 tbsp of granualated sweetener.

1 vanilla/toffee Mullerlight.

12 cupcake cases. (Optional)

Low calorie cooking spray.


This is one of my all in one methods so it is so quick and easy. It literally takes 5 minutes to make them!

  • Line a cupcake tray with 12 case’s or if not using bun cases spray with the low calorie cooking spray.
  • Crumble up the wheat biscuits to a fine crum and add in the remaining ingredients.
  • Use a hand whisk to beat the mixture until well combined.
  • Add 1 tbsp of the mix to each case and place in a preheated oven at 195c for 20 minutes. The buns will be hard on top when done.
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack if you can! Always store in the fridge, they should last up to 5 days.IMG_20141128_175226

You’re looking fab!

    I just made these and they still seem wet in the middle after 45 mins at 200 in my oven… Is this right? Or should I wait for them to cool?
