"HEALTHIFIED" COOKIE DOUGH CUPCAKES
1/2 c. coconut flour
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. Swerve (or erythritol and 1/2 tsp stevia glycerite)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk
1/2 c. coconut oil or butter
1 tsp vanilla
COOKIE DOUGH FROSTING:
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup Swerve (or erythritol and 1/2 tsp stevia glycerite)
8 oz cream cheese, softened (or coconut cream if dairy allergy)
2 TBS almond milk (or more to thin the frosting)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ChocoPerfection Bars, chopped
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all the dry ingredients and blend well. Add the dry and wet ingredients and blend until smooth. Grease and fill a cupcake tin 2/3rds full. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes before frosting.
To make the frosting, place the butter in a small saucepan and melt over medium-high heat (heat until it turns brown, not black). Add in natural sweeteners until dissolved and the mixture bubbles just a little. Using a hand mixer on low speed, add in cream cheese, almond milk and vanilla. Mix until combined. Once the mixture is totally cool (you don't want the chocolate to melt), stir in the chunks of ChocoPerfection. Use to frost cupcakes. Makes 12 large cupcakes.
