Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

These Keto Chocolate Cupcakes are pack full of moist chocolate deliciousness, topped with a creamy buttery frosting that will leave you thinking they are packed full of sugar. That’s right, these Keto Chocolate Cupcakes are so delicious, no one will believe they are low carb and keto approved.

Not only are these Keto Chocolate Cupcakes keto friendly, they are gluten free. These are packed full of fat making them sorta like a keto fat bomb, but in a death by chocolate cup cake form. One tip I can give is to use a grass-fed butter for better nutritional benefits.

Instructions

FOR THE CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Line (or grease and dust with cocoa) a muffin pan, set aside. 
  2. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, coconut flour, baking powder and xanthan gum to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined, set aside. 
  3. Add butter, heavy cream, cocoa powder and salt to a large heatproof bowl. Melt over a water bath whisking constantly (or use the microwave in small bursts). Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly. 
  4. Add in the sweetener and one egg at a time, whisking well after each one until completely incorporated. The texture should appear smooth and thick, with all the sweetener dissolving into the mixture (if using erythritol, granules will remain). Add the flour mixture, whisking vigorously until fully blended (about a minute). Divide the batter into prepared muffin pan. 
  5. Bake for 14-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Always keep in mind, however, that your cupcakes will continue to cook while cooling! 
  6. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes in the muffin pan. They’ll be particularly fragile right out of the oven, so you need to let them set. Keep stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days. 

FOR THE CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

  1. Add the butter, cream cheese and sweetener to a large bowl. Cream the mixture with your stand mixer using the paddle attachment (or with an electric mixer) until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. You’ll want to scrape the bowl every so often to ensure an even mixture. Add cocoa powder to taste, espresso powder and salt and continue to beat until fully incorporated.
  2. Transfer frosting to a piping bag with a tip and decorate each cupcake.
  3. The cupcakes keep well, stored in an airtight container in the fridge, for about 3 days. And they also freeze beautifully, just thaw it out in the fridge overnight.

What Is The Keto Diet?

You may be here on theketogod.com but still be unsure of what exactly the keto diet is, so allow me to explain.

In its basic form, the ketogenic diet is a low carb, high fat diet where the person following the diet eats foods low in carbs but high in fat. 

Eating this way allows the body to switch from using sugar as it’s main source of energy to using fat for energy. Yes, I said fat!

With the keto diet you can eat amazing dessert options like the ones below and still lose weight as your body uses its own fat for energy.
