Dark Chocolate & Blackberry Paleo Cupcakes

It’s cupcake time! But not just any cupcakes – Dark Chocolate & Blackberry Paleo Cupcakes. Let’s do this!

Dark Chocolate & Blackberry Paleo Cupcakes

The recipe is nice and easy, and you can have these cuties done and ready to be enjoyed in 1 hour. The cupcake itself is made with coconut flour, collagen peptides, cacao powder, sunflower seed butter, eggs, banana and blackberries.

It has no nuts, so it’s perfect for those who can’t tolerate nuts, have allergies to them or simply don’t want to have them as part of their diet.

The collagen peptides are dark chocolate & blackberry flavored, so they go hand in hand with the flavors of the actual cupcake (it was just meant to be!). This ingredient was added to the recipe to add extra nutrition to our treat. Don’t you love it when delicious treats are also good for you?

The sunflower seed butter adds moist and decadence to the cupcake base, so this is a situation where both the cupcake AND the toppings are amazing.

The toppings are perfectly balanced with a blackberry sauce made with just two ingredients, and with a chocolate sauce made purely out of one dairy-free ingredient! These two are magical together and I think you’ll absolutely love the combo.

  1. Hello.
    Love your blog!
    I am wondering what I could substitute for the Vital Proteins? That ingredient is just to expensive for a family of four.
