Coconut Flour Chocolate Cupcakes

My hard work is finally starting to pay off, especially with all the good things that are coming my way recently. One of them is that I got a promotion a month ago at work, yay! I can’t think of any other way to celebrate the good news than with a nice chocolate cupcake 🙂
I haven’t baked any treats for a while, especially cupcakes, so the ingredients that I had on hand were really limited. Luckily, I came across this recipe from Divine Sustenance, and I happened to have a majority of the ingredients in my kitchen!

I made a few small changes to the recipe, namely the egg whites because I coincidentally finished my egg whites this morning, so I used a chia seed & water in place of the egg whites. With every teaspoon of chia seed you use, add in two tablespoons of water. Let it sit for a few minutes then mix for about 20 seconds before adding it to your mixture.

Baked for 35 minutes at 350 F and the result:

Delicious, moist chocolate cupcake!
I normally find coconut flour too drying, but not with these cupcakes! They are so chocolatey and not at all too sweet.

Sorry this is such a short post! It’s really quite a last minute decision to do some baking… I was actually trying to prep my meals for the next day but I ended up baking some treats instead. Oops…

Happy Baking! 🙂
