Chocolate Cupcakes that are Good for You!

I would consider these chocolate cupcakes good for you. I mean, at least it gives me an excuse to eat three four of them! They are filled with coconut flour, coconut oil, and eggs. You can eat them for breakfast with a smile on your face! 

As mothers we have plenty of guilt lying around. One of them is guilt over what we feed our children. I often feel guilt unnecessarily. Being concerned about my children eating a balanced diet, too much sugar or being picky about those green beans on their plate.  We can simply do our best and leave the rest in God's hands!

What I love about these cupcakes is that you don't have to feel guilty!  We love them because they are really easy, healthy to boot and yummy!

Coconut Flour Chocolate Cupcakes {Paleo, GAPS}


1/4 c. coconut flour
1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs
1/4 c. coconut oil or melted butter
1/2 c. honey

Mix dry ingredients in a mixer or bowl. Add eggs, coconut oil and honey. Mix well and let coconut flour absorb liquids.  Spoon into cupcake pan with liners. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-15 minutes. Makes 9 cupcakes. 

Enjoy your guilt free chocolate fix!

We love them with buttercream icing, mmm!

We buy our coconut oil from Amazon. It is one of the cheapest ways to buy the unrefined goodness. If you click on the picture and purchase it through this link, Amazon will be so good as to give me an advertising fee. Make sure you Subscribe as Save as well, there is no obligation to buy more and you get a discount!

I also have found the best price for coconut flour is on Amazon. If you don't want to purchase four bags, make sure to find a friend to split it with you! We have SO much fun experimenting with coconut flour!

"My daughter...why do you not tell me about everything that concerns you, even the smallest details? Tell Me about everything, and know that this will give Me great joy. I answered, But You know about everything, Lord." And Jesus replied to me, "Yes I do know; but you should not excuse yourself with the fact that I know, but with childlike simplicity talk to Me about everything, for my ears and heart are inclined towards you, and your words are dear to Me."
