Yup. It’s my first experiment with Paleo baking. These are not to eat daily but for a treat. I haven’t had anything sweet in 6 weeks so this is a nice treat. We are having visitors for tea today. So here is my attempt at paleo chocolate cupcakes. First time and they came out perfectly. Soft, moist and crumbly but not sweet. If you add icing it will sweeten it for an occasion otherwise as a no guilt treat it’s fine on its own.
1 slab Lindt 70% chocolate (100gr)
1/4 cup coconut oil
Melt together in small pot over a low heat
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup of honey
Blend together in mixer with beater attachment
Add melted chocolate mix into eggs, first a little bit then the rest, continuing to beat.
Then add 1/2 cup ground almond
1/2 cup cocoa powder ( pure cocoa) and 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
Blend all together and scrape down the sides. Yes it’s liquedy but it will be fine.
Pour in cupcake holders in a muffin tin. Makes 12.
Bake at 180 for 15-18 minutes.
*. With a bit more experimentation there is another variation of this recipe that I now prefer. All is the same except I use 4 eggs instead of 6 and instead if 1/2 cup of cocoa, I use 1/2 cup of coconut flour and about a 1T of cocoa. It also makes it less bitter. Still yummy!
