DIRECTIONS

For this recipe you will need black food coloring (either liquid or gel; for liquid you will need 1/2 tsp and for gel just a small amount is needed).  You will also need orange or other color for the frosting; amount will depend upon desire for color depth.  The cupcakes may be sprinkled with edible glitter which is made of food coloring and guar gum (no sugar).  The glitter and food colorings can be found at some hobby stores or online.
 
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.  Prepare a muffin tin with 6 paper cups.  Set aside.  
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs with the coconut milk, granular sugar substitute, vanilla, black food coloring and 3 tablespoons melted butter.  Set aside.  
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the coconut flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  Add to egg mixture whisking to incorporate all ingredients for about a minute.  Divide batter into the 6 paper cups, place in the oven and bake until fully set in the center; about 15-18 minutes.  When done, set on a wire rack to cool. 
  4. Make Frosting:  In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.  Add 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) softened butter and continue to beat another minute.  Add the erythritol; beat another minute then add vanilla and food coloring as desired.  Adjust for sweetness by adding a pinch of stevia if desired.  Frost cupcakes using a piping bag or by hand.

Cooking Tip

Nuts or chocolate chips would be a great way to customize this recipe to make it your own! If you add any ingredients, just be sure to keep an eye on net carbs.

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
