Diabetic Chocolate Cupcake

Diabetic Chocolate Cupcake RECIPE

Ladies, I know…sometimes all you need is some chocolate cake! But cake and Prediabetes don’t usually mix. Is it possible to make a Diabetic Chocolate Cupcake Recipe? Yes!!! In this blog post I’ll tell how you can make a chocolate cupcake and eat it too…read on…

Cupcakes and desserts are great…but often they’re:

  • Packing too much sugar
  • Or full of sugar alcohols that leave you running to the lou
  • Or crammed with bitter tasting processed stevia (yuk!)
  • Or full of good-gut-microbe killers a.k.a. = fake sugars

The answer? Just eat a smaller portion of the real thing!

OK, I know it’s beyond the capabilities of some to exert self control…but when the portions are pre-made…self control becomes easy.

Why The Small Cupcake?

Forced portion control!

We all know the first few bites of dessert are always the best so why not have a 3 Bite Dessert?

If you only have one mini cupcake you’ll get less than 1 tsp of honey (4 grams carbs), a whole bunch of fiber, healthy fat and loads of protein…sounds good!

Add your vegan ice cream (maybe a teaspoon or two…) and your carbs might go up by a few grams…if that…

This is the blender I use to make my Chocolate Cupcakes. I also use it to grind flax for my Flax Bread, make Green Smoothies, make Coconut Flour Muffins, low carb Pancakes and delicious Chocolate Smoothies! I use my Vitamix everyday! (as you can tell…lol)

New To Buying Coconut Flour?

I always use Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour. It is consistent in texture and works well for baking, pancakes or waffles. All my coconut flour recipes were created with Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour.

Coconut Oil & Cholesterol: Coconut oil contains a high amount of saturated fat as does palm oil, butter, dairy, cheese, lard, eggs and animal fat.

Eating coconut oil raises cholesterol in high risk people. If you have ANY blood fat issues, including high cholesterol, it's better that you don't eat coconut oil or any other saturated fats.

For the rest of you ladies you can enjoy the occasional baked good made with coconut oil. If you're eating coconut oil regularly and you notice a negative change in your blood fats, including cholesterol – stop eating coconut oil and ALL other saturated fats immediately.
