These low carb cupcakes may be just what you need when you are missing a little sweet baking or need to take something to a friend's house.
Low Carb Cupcakes
I've mentioned before that I don't make cakes and sweet treats as often as I used to. I feel it is part of the ethos of going low carb that I don't want to find replicas of what we are actually trying to give up, but sometimes, it is nice to have low carb cupcakes as an available alternative.
What's wrong with gluten-free flour?
Don't buy gluten-free baking mixes or gluten-free goods as these are generally high in starch, highly processed and incredibly high in carbs. They are stripped of any nutrition then fortified. Gluten-free products are mainly based on rice flour, potato flour or tapioca starch.
Gluten-free products are a billion-dollar industry. It is so much cheaper and easier to just go grain-free, and it is far, far more nutritious.
Easy grain-free (and gluten-free) cakes
Our favourite cake has to be my Low Carb Lemon Coconut Cake, because the desiccated coconut gives it a lovely texture. It is not stodgy, doughy or crumbly. I used that recipe as the basis of these low carb cupcakes.
These chocolate low carb cupcakes have no added sugar, wheat-free, grain-free so gluten-free, and easy to make.
