N utella Cupcakes, Yay! Somehow you have to pass the time at home and baking is a great way to do that. Here in Bavaria, the exit restrictions due to Corona have been in place for a week now and we can look forward to at least three more. I was once again shopping today and surprised that the shelves are quite well stocked. Okay, that goes for everything except toilet paper, Flour or yeast. Fortunately, however, I was able to get hold of everything except flour. Somewhere I’ll find another one and if all else fails, I’ll grow it myself. Now I mean spelt and not the flour, because there are supposed to be children who are firmly convinced that milk comes from purple cows. Other than that, not so much going on at veganevibes headquarters right now, daily dog walk, lots of yoga (my sore muscles say hello) and Recipes testing for you. Well, do you fancy these great vegan Cupcakes ! Let’s go.

Hazelnuts are one of my absolute MUST HAVES in the kitchen. When I think alone of the smell of fresh roasted hazelnuts from the oven, a poem. Besides the sensational smell, it is also important to know what makes the nut so healthy. Nuts are per se quite high in calories, therefore consume them rather in moderation. Let’s move on to the health benefits:

  • Rich in healthy, unsaturated fatty acids (can have a positive effect on heart health impact)
  • Special rich in high quality proteins (12 percent)
  • Provides important B vitamins
  • Vitamin E (cell renewal)
  • Rich in Magnesium
  • Healthy dietary fiber

If you are not really into Nutella and chocolate today, I recommend my Poppy seed lemon muffins , Simple Banana Nut Muffins or Raspberry Lightning Muffins . I am sure there is something for you too.
