Thank goodness, cocoa is good for you!

Cocoa consumption can lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, and prevent heart disease, among many other benefits.

Of course, you could add some nuts to these to add in some omega 3s and more flavor, too!

    So I desperately needed something chocolate tonight and decided to try these. Wow! They are DELICIOUS! I wanted to have some type of frosting on them, but didn't want to do a traditional, fattening and unhealthy butter cream. Instead, I made two different "frostings" to top the cupcakes with. For the first one, I placed 1 cup of unsweetened coconut shreds in my Blendtec twister jar with about 1 tbsp dark cocoa powder and 2 dates to make a chocolate coconut butter (my healthy version of German chocolate frosting). For the second one, I placed appx 1/4 cup powdered sugar in the twister jar with 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp powdered peanut butter, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract and 1/2 small container non-fat, plain Greek yogurt. I blended each (individually) on speed 7 for about 30 seconds. Both were LOVELY!

    1. Amanda you’re already ROCKING your new Blendtec!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!! What healthy spreads 🙂

  2. Hi Laura and WELCOME! Yes you can probably use coconut flour/almond meal, however coconut flour absorbs liquid more than other flours so you might want to use less than 1 cup. If you do test this recipe please let us know in the comments and we can update the post for the substitution. 😀 HAPPY BLENDING!
