Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 12 cupcakes



  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon espresso powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup avocados, around 2 medium, mashed
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Marshmallow Frosting

  • 3 egg whites
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • Crushed graham cracker, garnish, optional
  • Chocolate sauce, garnish, optional



  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with 12 liners and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, espresso powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mash avocado to make it as smooth as possible. You can toss it in a food processor to get it really smooth if you’re low on time (or energy).
  • Add flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • Now add sugar, water and vanilla, stir to combine until smooth.
  • Using a ¼ measuring cup, pour batter into cupcake liners until almost full. Bake for 17-20 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean, and the tops should be cracked a bit and spring back when touched. Set on wire rack to cool completely.

Marshmallow Frosting

  • Place egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar in a double broiler over a simmering pot of water.
  • Whisk constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is foamy.
  • Pour egg white mixture into a large mixing bowl and whip on high speed with a whisk attachment until it forms stiff peaks.
  • Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and garnish with crushed graham cracker and chocolate sauce. Enjoy!



Don't want to use avocado? Just substitute 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature.
