Gluten Free Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes
These are incredibly simple to make and equally decadent for those occasions when you want to satisfy your chocolate craving without any guilt!
2 cups non-dutched chocolate powder (you can find non-dutched chocolate powder at Whole Foods for a very reasonable price! Also, non dutched is my first choice because the "dutching" process used in standard cocoa powder results in the loss of about half of the antioxidants.)
- 1 cup raw coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
- pinch sea salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg 4 heaping tablespoons raw honey
- Optional frosting/glaze:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbs raw honey
- 1/2 cup chocolate powder
** If too liquidy, add more chocolate powder
** If too thick/dry add more oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake in greased cupcake sheet for 8-10 mins….best if taken out while still slightly raw in the middle but thoroughly cooked around the edges.
Mix by hand and drizzle or spoon over the cooled cakes.
I often just dust the cakes with powdered sugar, though the glaze is positively decadent.
