Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Cupcakes
Ingredients40 m servings 272 cals
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line muffin pans with paper liners.
- Combine gluten-free flour, coconut sugar, dark chocolate chips, cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt in a bowl; mix well to combine.
- Whisk buttermilk, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together in another large bowl until combined. Add flour mixture; fold in with a spatula until completely blended. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about halfway.
- Bake cupcakes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Cook's Notes:
- Use the gluten-free flour of your choice. Substitute brown rice flour for the coconut flour if desired. Note coconut flour drinks moisture out of recipes, so the batter may appear very thick. Not so with brown rice flour.
- Substitute milk for the buttermilk if preferred.
- I use avocado oil. You can also use coconut oil, but there will be a slight flavor difference.
- This recipe makes 12 big cupcakes, or 18 slightly smaller ones.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
