I had these amazing cupcakes recently at a friends birthday party and just HAD to get the recipe! They were so delicious that I actually made them as soon as I got home! I tested them out on my daycare kids and they loved them! (of course I didn’t tell them they were healthy! 🙂 Once you taste these, you’ll find it hard to believe that they are gluten free and sugar free! These are perfect for any Chocolate lover who is trying to eat healthy! Enjoy!
The recipe is from www.paleomg.com
For the cupcakes
½ cup dates, pitted
2 egg whites
⅓ cup Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil
¼ cup canned coconut milk
¼ cup Coconut Flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 cups dates (soften in hot water if they are not fresh)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add dates to your food processor and mix until the dates become a large sticky ball.
Place all wet ingredients in the food processor with dates: coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs and egg whites and pulse until everything in the food processor is completely liquid.
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and mix well then add your wet ingredients from the food processor to the dry ingredients bowl and mix to incorporate.
Scoop cupcake ingredients into your silicone or paper lined muffin tin and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke a cupcake. (Cupcake batter should not be super runny)
While the cupcakes bake, make your frosting.
Once your cupcakes are done cooking, let cool COMPLETELY.
Frost your cupcakes to your liking then top with some mini Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips!
Makes about 6-7 cupcakes
