Key Lime Cupcakes are light, fluffy cupcakes full of key lime flavor! These cakes are made with lime juice and zest, topped with a tangy sweet cream cheese lime frosting made gluten-free and refined sugar-free.
To make these delicious citrus infused cupcakes I used gluten-free baking flour, zero calorie sweetener (Swerve), eggs, almond milk, coconut oil and of course key limes! And the frosting is just as simple. I used cream cheese, yogurt and zero calorie confectioners sweetener (Swerve). This simple recipe takes about 20 minutes to whip up and just .325 seconds to devour.
There’s something about citrus that makes me crave it on a hot day. Living in Southern California this means I need citrus like everyday between March-September. I’m okay with that because like I love citrus desserts! Here are a few of my favorite citrus recipes I’ve created:
- Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake
- Baked Lemon Raspberry Donuts
- Blueberry Lemon & Thyme Galette
- Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Banana Bread
- Healthy Lemon Blueberry Donuts
- Blackberry Lime Passion Tea with Chia
These sweet and tart cupcakes taste just like a slice of key lime pie and they make a perfect party treat. I know this from experience because I took these cupcakes to my friends house for a pool party and they were practically all gone within the first 5 minutes. Like GONE! Everyone devoured these cupcakes in before I could make my rounds and say hi to everyone.
Chocolate Healthy Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting made gluten-free, sugar-free and high in protein!
Double chocolate healthy cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Need I say more? Yes, I do because of SEO and all that blogger stuff that I actually don’t understand that much. My plugin keeps telling me to write more so I do. 🙂
So back to the cupcakes. These healthy chocolate frosted cupcakes are made so healthy you could eat one for breakfast, before a workout, after a workout or right before bed and your Mama wouldn’t mad.
These cupcakes are frosted using 2-ingredients chocolate frosting! YES, you read that right! All you need is just two ingredients to make this delicious frosting. In the past I’ve made 2-ingredients chocolate frosting using just a sugar free chocolate bar and a couple tablespoons of almond milk but not this time.
This time I made my chocolate frosting using a sugar-free chocolate bar and a sweet potato. My chocolate bar and milk recipe is delicious but super rich and tastes best with a thin layer (like over banana bread) but if you are looking to put globs and globs of frosting on a cupcake then this sweet potato frosting is exactly what you are looking for.
I used PEScience Frosted Chocolate Cupcake Select Protein Powder (how convenient, right?) in this frosted chocolate cupcake recipe and you can get 30% off all PEScience products using my affiliate code PBCHOCO on their website PEScience.com
The macros for these cupcakes are pretty dang good and I was seriously impressed with myself when I counted them up and then later I got to thinking that I could also add protein to the frosting. I don’t think it would change the texture much except make it stiffer but it would make it much sweeter and higher in protein. So if you get a wild hair up your butt and want to try that, let me know how it goes. 🙂
