  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and line a tray with cupcake cases.

  2. In your Ninja Blender, combine the bananas, coconut oil, syrup and coconut sugar and blend.

  3. Add in the rum, vanilla and egg, then blend again.

  4. Now, pour in the dry ingredients and blend everything together until you’re left with a smooth batter.

  5. Pour this into the cases and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

  6. Meanwhile, to make the icing, combine the coconut cream, cacao powder and syrup and gently fold these together.

  7. Transfer into a piping bag and decorate each of your cupcakes.

Cooking and being in the kitchen was always something that I loved, after always helping and watching my mum cook as a child. Fitness is a huge part of my life, so making sure that I fuel my body with healthy, nourishing foods goes hand in hand with that. I started to create healthy alternatives to my favourite dishes and loved sharing my photos and recipes on social media just as a hobby. After a while I decided to set up my blog, which was my place to really get creative and write and share whatever I wanted.
