CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES (WITH ALMOND FLOUR)

I had a couple of clients this week with birthdays so I shared some healthier  ( of course) cupcakes with them. You can substitute another sweetener of your choice.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ½ cups of almond flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder or a combination of chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter-optional
  • Almond milk, coconut milk or water to thin for consistency
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • Mini chocolate chips-optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Prepare cupcake pan with liners or spray muffin tins.
  2. Combine almond flour, cocoa powder, protein powder, and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add sweetener, oil, butter, eggs, extracts and milk, mix well.
  4. Fill cupcake liners ¾ of the way. Bake about 25 minutes.
  5. Top with whip cream!
