Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes are a quick and easy paleo dessert made without almond flour. The base of this healthy cupcake recipe is whole almonds, and you only need a handful of other ingredients to throw these together. In addition to almonds, this recipe calls for chocolate, eggs, honey, oil, vanilla, and salt

We love making Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes for birthdays and other celebrations. They will wow your guests whether they’re gluten-free or able to eat anything under the sun. My husband, who has no food restrictions at all loves this Flourless Chocolate Cupcake recipe. These cupcakes are rich and dark and totally addictive when smothered in my dairy-free Paleo Chocolate Frosting.

My husband is really benefiting from all of my cupcake creations. He especially loves the Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes in my second book, Gluten-Free Cupcakes. I love them too because they’re not only incredibly chocolatey and delicious, they’re super easy to make. I love the challenge of making the easiest paleo recipes in the world, and so appreciate all of the feedback I’ve been getting from fans that my recipes can be whipped up without any fuss!

I think you’ll love these Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes. They’re perfect when you’re in a pinch and have run out of almond flour since they’re made with whole almonds!

  1. For a challenge I believe you said you’re addressing, decrease or eliminate sugar- in any form. I have to skip all your rich, fudgy (my fav) chocolate recipes when they’re made of chocolate chips. Same for dates as the sweetener. (I skip coconut flour because of the taste.) this challenge applies to all recipes.

  2. I was wondering if almond butter would work? Just add the chocolate chunks to the butter and continue the recipe. Thank you.
