Food4Thought is a commentary on the ethics of eating, food justice and contemporary ideas on food democracy as well as recipes. Did I just say the same thing three different ways?

Chocolate YoYo Muffin

What to do when you're snowed in? Come up with a cream filled cup cake alternative! It was my husband's idea to call it a YoYo - a joke after the Hostess Ding Dong! But this little muffin is packed with great stuff:
* 1/2 cup almond meal (I save mine from making almond milk - it's what's left over in the nut milk bag when you strain it)
* 2 organic eggs
* 1/3 cup coconut milk (or water)
* 1/2 avocado oil (or canola or walnut)
* 1/2 maple syrup
* 2 cups freshly ground flour (I use spelt)
* 1/2 cup raw cacao poder (or any)
* 1 teaspoon cassia cinnamon
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* organic cream cheese

After mixing, let rise for 5-7 min. Put one large spoonful in the bottom of each muffin tin and then add a teaspoon or more cream cheese (whipped works best) and then cover with another large spoonful batter. Bake at 375 for about 12 min or until tops crack.
