Low Carb Chocolate Cupcakes

I've been trying different cupcake recipes for a while now and after a little experimenting have come up with this delicious low carb chocolate cupcake recipe.

This recipe is definitely a keeper, not only low carb and gluten free it's also extremely good, so far I've tested on several non low-carbers and they had no idea that it was a healthy recipe.

I like to have them for breakfast in the morning with a cup of coffee and have to say that it's so nice to feel like your cheating on your diet and still be able to lose weight or even maintain.  Give this one a try and I'm sure that you're going to be pleased with the results. For the topping I just used a simple cream cheese frosting (low carb of course.)

1 cup almond flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sweetener like swerve
4 Tbs. cocoa
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 tbs. melted butter
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees then mix together your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Next blend together your wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients taking care to mix well.. Then pour into cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for approx 15 minutes or until done.  Recipe makes approx 10-12 cupcakes depending on how full you fill the liners.
