Double Chocolate Cupcakes
Author: Flavia Del Monte
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 12 - 16
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered cacao
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Aztec salt
  • 8 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2/3 cup honey or agave
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F
  2. Line muffin pan with cupcake liners
  3. Mix dry ingredients together in a food processor
  4. Slowly add wet ingredients into processor
  5. Fold in chocolate chunks
  6. Use a small ice cream scoop to separate into cupcake liners. Fill about 3/4 full
  7. Bake for 17 - 20 minutes
Notes
You can replace the coconut oil with organic melted butter if you prefer the butter taste. Another option is to use ghee. [br][br]If you leave them in for a little less time than recommended they come out a little gooey in the centre which is actually very delicious, but that depends on your preference!

    Do you have the macros for these?

  • Deborah says:

    What’s the amount of coconut oil? You just say “½”… ½ what?

  • Cassie says:

    Clarification: 1/2 CUP coconut oil 🙂

  • Samantha Ross says:

    Thanks so much for the recipe!

  • Cheryl Chimes says:

    Do you have to melt the coconut oil?

    • Flavia says:

      Sure – you can melt the coconut oil. My kitchen stays warm enough that it is soft enough to blend in nicely.. Just be sure that it’s not hard or it won’t mix 🙂

  • Marie says:

    Yes that would be an important question – is the 1/2 cup of coconut oil melted or solid? Thank you!

    Could you give the calorie and fat count please?

  • Jean says:

    I thought your recipes were supposed to contain everyday ingredients that will be in the pantry.
    I look at the first recipe and it contains “coconut flour & oil”, ” Aztec salt”, none of these items have ever been in my pantry. And isn’t 8 eggs a little much for such a little amount of flour?

    I am sure there is a way that I can cancel my order for you book, I would certainly appreciate you telling me how that can be accomplished.
    Please respond to me personally.
    Thanks, Jean

    • Flavia says:

      Hey Jean,

      I use Aztec salt because it is the healthiest salt and I want my customers to eat as healthy as possible. You can always sub it with regular sea salt if you have that in your cupboards..

      All my friends and family use coconut or almond flour. I cook with it everyday. If it’s something that you don’t have you can sub it with whole wheat flour but I wouldn’t recommend that because it isn’t healthy… but it will work.

      If you are looking for a refund feel free to let me team know. You can chat with them through my Help Desk: http://flaviliciousfitness.com/helpdesk/

      I know there are ingredients that are foreign to your pantry NOW. If you only give these recipes a chance. If you do, you will find that your pantry contents will change because you discover on your own that you feel better because you are cooking more healthily for you and your family. My pantry has changed and I’m happy that it has changed. You will be, too. I have also found out that is expensive to eat healthy. Yikes!

  • Victor V. says:

    Agave? That’s not good for you! I’d stick with the honey (no pun intended).

  • Michelle says:

    These recipes are created to be healthy. If you want healthy recipes then you will need to revamp your pantry, because you can’t expect to eat healthily with the processed ingredients that might be considered pantry staples.
    Thanks Flavia for the recipe I am looking forward to trying it.

  • Julie Western says:

    This is meant as a “treat”!!! NOT something you would eat everyday. Coconut oil is used instead of butter as well as coconut flour instead of whole wheat flour. This I would consider a healthy alternative. THANK YOU Flavia for sharing!! I’m sure you meant this as a Valentine’s Day treat as well!!

    P.S. Maybe “Jean” needs to revamp her pantry to MAKE it healthier!!

  • Julie says:

    These look awesome and truly are a healthy treat! My kids will love and I will feel great about giving them such a healthy cupcake.

  • Paris says:

    OMG it’s not that hard to find coconut flour/oil etc. You can find it in your everyday store(unless you live on the moon..or under a rock)
    Great recipe Flavia 🙂

  • Heather says:

    Hi Flavia,
    I just want to say thank you for recipes that the whole family can enjoy. Since I started using your recipes and cutting gluten out of my diet, I have lost 8lbs without even trying! The best part is that I have not felt the least bit deprived either.
    I really appreciate your dedication to our health and your willingness to share your insights.

    Thank You,
    Heather

  • Bettina says:

    Hi flavia, thanks for the recipe!! looks delicious!

    do you add salt to Milia’s food? Is it ok to give to babies and toddlers?
    I always understood it was better to avoid it or is it outdated advice ?
    I use organic sea salt, that’s what I can find where I live.

  • Sam Bailey says:

    I use pink salt instead of white and I agree Replace the flours in the pantry with healthy flours, that’s what it is all about

  • Michelle H says:

    Just made them…waiting patiently for them to come out of the oven. I would also like to know the nutrient facts on these, calorie and fat counts along with fiber and sugar
    …2/3 cups of honey seems like a lot of sugar but it is a better sugar than regular I hope. And it is true that you can find almond flour and coconut flour and coconut oil at almost every grocery store. The cacao was a little harder for me to find…but Whole Foods had it…it is pricey but I am sure worth the health benefits. The batter was pretty darn tasty…can’t wait for the baked goods.

    • Anna says:

      Hi Michelle,
      I hope you enjoy them! Yes, the honey is MUCH better for you than regular sugar. You should be able to find almond and coconut flour at your local health food store. You could also find almonds and unsweetened coconut, which you should be able to find at your local grocery store, and make your own flour. These are really just meant as an occasional treat so you don’t have to worry about the macronutrients but if you really want them you can add up the nutrition facts of all of the ingredients listed then divide but the amount of servings the recipe produces.
      All the best!

  • Heidi says:

    Hey there!! I was wondering if you can use coconut sugar instead of
    Honey?? How much!! Thanks flavia for the help you give others!
    You are so kind! May God bless you and your family always!

    Heidi ❤️

    • Anna says:

      Hi Heidi,
      Coconut sugar should work just fine. You would probably use the same amount, 2/3 cup. You may need to add more liquid to the batter since the coconut sugar is drier than honey.
      All the best,

    I can’t wait to try these! Compared to a Sprinkles cupcake, these are almost like eating just half of one!

    I calculated the macros for those interested:
    255 calories
    16.5 g fat
    24.1 g carbs
    6.1 g protein
    Plus 3.2 g fiber and 17.6 g sugar

    The only thing missing is frosting (I hate dry cake), but the chocolate chunks should be nice and moist! 🙂
