Chocolate Flax Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Frosting...
I am normally not a "recipe blogger"..not that there is anything wrong with being a recipe blogger...I just am usually not. But today I made these low carb "cupcakes" to take to a family BBQ so I wouldn't be tempted by the "real" cake....and oh my goodness...they were so good! I had to share...
Chocolate Flax Muffins
1/2 c flax meal
2 tbs cocoa powder
1/4 c heavy cream
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp Stevia powder
4 oz cream cheese softened
2 tbs PB2 powdered peanut butter
1/8 tsp vanilla
stevia to taste.
Mix all of the first list of ingredients together until smooth.
Fill 6 muffin tins (sprayed with nonstick spray)
This will be enough batter to fill 6 muffin openings almost half full.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or so or until they are done.
Set asided to cool.
Mix all frosting ingredients together until it's the consistency of frosting.
At this point I put each cupcake in a paper cupcake liner before I frosted them.
Frost each cupcake with a portion of the frosting.
Makes 6 cupcakes
each one has:
