preheat oven to 325°, and spray a cupcake tray with avocado oil.
first, prepare the cookie dough by combining all 'cookie dough' ingredients in a medium bowl. roll into 7-8 balls, drop 'em on a plate, and place in freezer.
next, prepare the cupcake mix by combining all 'cupcake' ingredients in a medium bowl. fill ~7 cupcake holders 3/4 of the way full (6 for larger cupcakes, 8 for smaller ones). bake 10 minutes.
remove from oven, and preheat to 350° (should take about 1-2 minutes to heat up, since we're already at 325°). drop a frozen cookie dough ball into each muffin. press down so the ball is mostly covered, but not too firmly that the dough hits the bottom of the tin!
bake cupcake with dough ball in the middle at 350 for 12-15 minutes (or until the top is just a wee bit golden brown color).
