Going to a birthday party or a friendly gathering can be challenging when on a keto diet, this is how I came up with the idea for this recipe. These mini low carb cupcakes are just bite size and packed with flavors from the combination of cocoa and coffee.
Making small batch chocolate cupcakes is super easy. It is a perfect mini dessert that you can take with you wherever you go and please your keto and non-keto friends and family.
I decided to make this with a coffee and cocoa combination for a more adult taste but you can make changes to this recipe by removing the coffee and just using the cocoa powder.
If you want a darker texture, consider adding more cocoa powder.
Depending on the size of your cupcake baking sheet you might need to adjust the cooking time to ensure it is completely cooked.
Even if you are making this recipe just for your afternoon break or to serve as a dessert, these sugar free cupcakes are a great option to attack the cravings and give yourself a little treat.
