These Healthy Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes are gluten free, refined sugar free and will cure any cravings.
Oh my goodness guys! It has been so incredibly cold lately. The days have been dark, rainy and short. During the winter months and especially when it is rainy as well as cold I tend to crave everything and anything. Since I have always been an absolute cupcake addict, cupcakes seem to be my go to for cold weather cravings. The only problem with this is that I tend to then pack on a little extra winter cushioning around my hips! So over the last couple of months I have come up with a couple of recipes that are delicious and satisfying. But that are not terribly unhealthy and packed with tons of sugar. Some of my favourite recipes so far has been the Gluten Free Moist Chocolate Cake . And another one (which is also a reader favourite) being the Vanilla Chai Cupcakes. The newest addition being these yummy Healthy Chocolate and Raspberry Cupcakes.
These Healthy Chocolate and Raspberry Cupcakes are so delicious. The bitter dark chocolate taste with that tangy and sweet Raspberry Buttercream. Oh my goodness! YUM! These cupcakes are gluten-free, refined sugar free and can even be vegan. Simply by using flax eggs and swapping the butter (in the frosting) out for a little margarine or even some coconut oil.
These cupcakes are a serious cravings buster. They satisfy any craving you may have without having all of the bad stuff in it. Definitely something worth having lying around in your house ;).
