The sweetness is provided by a special type of palm sugar called Palmyra jaggery, which is low GI, low fructose, high in B vitamins and also has an alkalising effect in the body.

Cocoa powder, or even better, raw cacao powder, adds cell-protective antioxidants, as well as magnesium, calcium and iron.

These cupcakes are great for kids too – and they are nut-free, which makes them suitable for school lunchboxes.
