HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES
Lets go ahead and prep your oven first.
Preheat the oven to 400F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners.
Spray inside of the liners with cooking spray.
Now thats done. In a large bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, sweetener and cocoa powder.
Now you can add in the beaten eggs, Greek Yogurt and vanilla extract.
I have recently come to love using greek yogurt in my baked goods. It makes the cupcakes so light and fluffy!
Here is our beautiful rich keto cupcake batter. Now we can scoop the batter evenly into the muffin cups.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Top with sweetened whipped cream or keto buttercream frosting… and enjoy this rich, delicious cupcake!
Look at that crumb!

- Greek Yogurt: This is an unconventional keto ingredient that I have been loving lately in my keto baked goods. It makes the cupcakes so light and fluffy and actually has less carbs than sour cream!
- Cocoa Powder: Find one with the least amount of carbs. I like to use Ghirardelli.
