Ingredients

Frosting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  • In a large bowl, mix the almond meal, coconut flour, cacao powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and stevia powder together.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, almond milk, ghee, vanilla and honey until well incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Add some muffin liners** to a muffin pan and pour 2 generous tbsp of batter into each mould.
  • Bake in the oven for 16-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Take out of the oven and completely cool for 30-40 minutes.
  • When your cupcakes are cooled, make the frosting.
  • Add the raspberries to a food processor and pulse until a puree forms, about 30 seconds.
  • Using a hand mixer, whip the cream and stevia powder together until peaks form.
  • Fold in the raspberry puree and only mix 2-3 times. You want the raspberry puree to make a ripple effect in the cream.
  • Add the whipping cream to a piping bag attached with a round nozzle, and pipe the cream over each cupcake.
  • Add one raspberry over the cream. Using a peeler or cheese grater, grate the dark chocolate over each cupcake to complete the decoration.

Notes

*If using coconut cream, make sure the can of coconut milk has been chilled overnight in the refrigerator or it will not whip.
**If you don't want to use muffin liners, brush each muffin mould with some coconut oil and sprinkle some coconut/gf flour over. This will ensure that the cupcakes don't stick to the pan.
***You can add 1/2 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips to the batter, but this will add 39 calories and 4.29g net carbs to each cupcake.
