Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

I’m a sucker for cupcakes. Also chocolate. So these are right up my alley. You can go a couple different directions with the frosting to suit your preference.

Cupcakes (Recipe credit goes to satisfyingeats)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Cup and 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder), unsweetened
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tsp Sweetener (I prefer Swerve Confectioners, no aftertaste)
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup and 1 tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Melted Butter (preferably grass-fed)
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil, Melted
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Mix together dry ingredients.
  • In another bowl, mix wet ingredients.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, blend together.
  • Pour mix into greased or lined cupcake tins, baking ramekins, or even a larger muffin tin.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, more if using ramekins or muffin tin. Use a toothpick in the center to make sure they’re done.
