Chocolate peanut butter and spirulina cupcakes - a sweet dessert with a high nutritional value


Spirulina is a nutrient-rich ingredient. Contains about 60% protein and is has complete protein that can be important in vegetarian and vegan diets. Spirulina is available as a dietary supplement and in 100g contains 20% or more of essential nutrients, especially B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin) and minerals such as iron or manganese. It is also a good source of fatty acids (gamma-linolenic acid, alpha linolenic acid, linoleic acid, stearic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid and arachidonic acid)

Ingredients for 12 chocolate muffins:


  • 250g of dark chocolate (I used for the content of cocoa 86%)
  • 3 heaped tablespoons of peanut butter
  • Spoonful of Spirulina
  • 2 spoonfuls of pumpkin seeds
  • pinch of salt


Method:
Dissolve dark chocolate in a microwave oven or in a water bath. Pour half of the melted chocolate into each muffin case. Put in the fridge or freezer if you don't have much time. Mix the peanut butter with a pinch of salt, spirulina and pumpkin seeds. Transfer to the molds and finally pour the remaining chocolate. Put in the fridge for at least half an hour.
