Chocolate cupcake with yogurt frosting
Cupcake: Separate two eggs. Whisk whites into a thick fluff with two packets of Stevia. In another bowl mix the 2 yolks with one very ripe banana. Add about 1 tbsp of honey and another packet of Stevia, a few dashes of cinnamon & 1tbsp coco...nut oil (if you have it on hand then I would add either vanilal or almond extract as well, but this was a spur of the moment invention, so I only had the ingredients on hand in my pantry. Now combine the whites and the yolk mixture and add a teaspoon of backing soda, a dash of salt, and about 1.5-2 tablespoons of coconut flour. Mix in 1-2 tbs of cocoa powder (unsweetened) and dark (70%cocoa) chunks i you like. Spoon into cupcake papers, we use tinfoil ones because they are great. Bake for 35 minutes at 350F or until a knife comes out clean. Refrigerate.
Frosting: 1 6oz cup of greek yogurt. 2 packets of Stevia, 1-2 tbsp honey, 1tbsp of coconut flour to thicken. Refrigerate.
Once the Frosting gets thick, it will not get hard like traditional frosting, then ice the cupcakes and decorate with red and blue fruit for 4th of July :)
Refrigerate so that that frosting thickens up again.
We really enjoyed this little treat. Be sure to taste as you go and adjust ingredients to your liking.
