GINGER GOLD CHEW CUPCAKES
Golden raisins, crystallized ginger, sliced almonds, smoky soy protein, bananas mixed with oats, flour, flax, sugar brown & white, coriander, turmeric, powder gums and apple cider vinegar. Topped with brown sugar and baked to rise to new heights in culinary diet fare!
Except for the sliced almonds, no fat. Sugar content is low in comparison to most baked goods, offsetting the glycemic index with the apple cider vinegar added protein and complex carbs.
One muffin is a meal!
Right out of the oven you think you’re eating a caramelized butter cake with pockets of soft banana contrasted with crispy coriander sugared dough. Later the melt is muted, exposing all the textures and flavors!
No need for margarine or spreads!

Blueberry Pumpkin Chew Cupcakes
Okay, now that you’ve been introduced to the chew in previous recipes, we’re going to take this deeper into chew territory where the chew gets tougher.
This is a dense pudding chew. Different yes. Delightful yes. Filling, satisfying. Whipped plant cream anyone? Company coming? Yes.
Right from the oven, still warm, equals a Native Indian pudding chew. Room temperature, several hours later, and the tough emerges triumphant.
Serve with dipping sauces: Grade A maple syrup or Smokey Orange Marmalade Syrup. Top with plant whip cream, sprinkle with chopped cilantro and Walk On Water!
Or, eat that TOUGH all by itself. Cold. Hint of cigar, believe it or not!
Makes 12 plus 1 custard cupContinue reading →

FRUIT AND NUT CHOCOLATE CHEW CUPCAKES
Before taste-testing I only had one question for Steve. Muffin or cupcake? What do you think? Upon tasting he said, “a muffcake”. Half muffin half cake. Later I changed it to chew cakes – that was the distinguishing feature.
Not a pudding cake, not an air-stuffed bakery bought cake. Homemade, dry enough, moist enough, dense enough, flavorful enough, whereby you don’t taste the flour, crispy enough. Buckwheat adds something; I just don’t know what – yet!
Steve added, “and P.S. it tastes great.” Steve already warned me to put his ChewCakes aside for today’s game as the Browns take on the undefeated Patriots at Foxboro!
On his way out to the grocery store I hollered to him, “you better get some Tofutti cream cheese to have with them”.

And this is the result: an orange pecan corn chew cake with coriander, tarragon, smoke, allspice and extra virgin olive oil! Yes, Steve likes them – “Those cupcakes are good, really good; that’s a nice chew, very nice chew!”
