Sugar free chocolate cupcakes

This is a new one for me that I have adapted from a Paleo recipe. They turned out fantastic which is great considering they have no butter and sugar - my main staples for a cupcake recipe. 

I substituted some ingredients for those that are readily available to everyone to make a simple recipe with ingredients in your pantry. 

I hope you enjoy them as much as my children did today.  I did drizzled them with chocolate icing though...


Sugar free chocolate cupcakes

  • ½ cups self raising flour
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup hot water
Step 1 - Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.  Line a 12 capacity cupcake tin with cases.

Step 2 - In a large bowl, sift flour, cocoa & baking powder.  Add coconut oil, egg, honey and hot water.  Beat with an electric mixer until very well combined.  The mixture will appear quite runny.

Step 3 - Pour the mixture into a jug.  This makes it easier to pour into the cupcakes.  Fill each case to ¾ full.  

Step 4 - Bake in preheated oven for 16 - 18 mins or until cooked through. 


  1. 3 Researches SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually get rid of fat by eating coconut fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from large medicinal journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
