Dark Chocolate Cupcakes


These Paleo and Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes are moist, rich and heavy on the chocolate flavor and simply delicious! These simple-to-make cupcakes are a bit on the healthier side because they are dairy-free, made primarily with almond flour, and contain no added sugars.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with parchment paper liners.

  2. Whisk together almond flour, cocoa, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and espresso in a medium bowl.

  3. Whisk together eggscoconut sugar, milk, avocado oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl.

  4. Add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk to combine completely.

  5. Divide batter evenly between 12 cupcake liners.

  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 18-20 minutes minutes, or until a toothpick inserted and removed is clean of any wet cake batter.

  7. Let cupcakes cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing and cooling completely on a wire rack. Let cool completely before frosting.

  8. Frost with this paleo frosting, this chocolate buttercream frosting or this vanilla buttercream frosting.
