Gluten Free Flourless Sunbutter and Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe
What’s your favorite flavor combination? Hands down, one of mine has to be peanut butter and chocolate. Or at least it was until we discovered we had a family member with a severe peanut allergy – and then it became Sunbutter and Chocolate. This Gluten Free Flourless Sunbutter and Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe is not only gluten free and grain free, they are also nut free.
And they can easily become dairy free by simply using dairy free milk, chocolate chips, and full fat coconut milk. Easy-peasy.
These babies are what I call a guilt-free indulgence!
- 1¼ cups Creamy Sunbutter
- 1 cup brown sugar packed
- ½ cup milk or dairy free milk of your choice
- 4 large eggs separated
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 cups semisweet mini chocolate chips or dairy free chocolate chips divided use
- ¾ cup heavy cream or full fat coconut milk canned
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper cupcake liners in a 12 cup standard muffin tin.
In a mixer, beat together the Sunbutter, brown sugar, milk, egg yolks, vanilla, baking soda, salt and lemon juice.
With clean beaters, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir a large spoonful of egg whites into the Sunbutter mixture. Gently fold in the rest of the egg whites until the mixture is no longer streaky. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin tins. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Place the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl. Bring the cream to almost a boil in a small saucepan. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the cooled cupcakes.
