Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

I got this recipe from the free Whole Foods mini magazine at the Town and Country Whole Foods in Missouri. They really have some great and healthy recipes in them. This recipe is a really yummy vegan cupcake with avocado in it. It tastes really great and you would NEVER know there was avocado in the cupcake unless you were told. Enjoy!
