Recipe Ingredients will make a total of 12 cupcakes:
- 3/4 cup gluten free flour, consisting of:
- 1/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup sweet rice flour
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/2 tsp. guar gum
- 2 Tbsp. raw chocolate powder (regular unsweetened cocoa powder will also work)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup sucanat
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. Mi Huerta Vanilla Extract ***
- 2 Tbsp. peanut butter
- 3 Tbsp. coconut milk
Now that you have the ingredients ready to go let’s get the rest of the party started. Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C. In a bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients, including the sugar and the cocoa powder. Melt the chocolate chips with the butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. When fully melted, remove the chocolate from the heat, and add in the eggs and Mi Huerta Vanilla, mixing until completely blended. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients.
In another dish, mix peanut butter with the coconut milk until it becomes smooth, creamy, and fairly liquid. Add half of the peanut butter mixture to the chocolate and dry ingredients, setting the rest aside to use as a type of icing so-to-speak. Mix the dry ingredients, chocolate, and peanut butter together until a thick batter forms.
Line your 12 muffin cups with paper liners, and fill each one 3/4 full with the batter. Now, place 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining peanut butter on top of each unbaked cupcake. Use a tooth pick to swirl the peanut butter with the chocolate batter.
Bake the cupcakes at 350°F/180°C for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cupcakes rest for 5 minutes in the pan before removing to a cooling tray.
Now eat and ENJOY, but you may want a glass of almond milk after!
Gluten Free Benefits
Gluten is a protein found in Wheat, barley and rye. By eliminating gluten in your diet, you may notice a change in how your body reacts to certain foods and it may be in your favor. For many, eating with gluten is fine and has no negative effects. But a lot of people are sensitive to this protein and it causes them to experience side effects of intolerance. That’s why this recipe is so spectacular. Gluten free lovers and gluten tolerant eaters can enjoy this dessert and not think twice of how it may bother them after a couple of minutes. The fact that it’s totally gluten free yet includes peanut butter and chocolate proves you can eat something absolutely delicious and it still be healthier for you and your loved ones.
Less carbs, less sugar and little, to no gluten in your diet are proven to be better for you in general. You can always replace these gluten proteins with gluten-free grains such as corn, flax, millet and rice. However, it is always nice to express how easily it is to incorporate gluten-free recipes in your normal lifestyle and not even notice the difference! And, the plus side is both parties can enjoy the recipe too. Mi Huerta is pro food regardless if it has gluten or no gluten we just like being helpful and hope to be useful. We loved making this recipe and believe you will too. Can’t wait to share another great recipe again soon, take care!
