A Valentine’s Day Treat

Saint Valentine’s day is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, greeting cards and sweets. In the past few years I have also celebrated Valentine’s day by showing my appreciation to close friends and family. This time I decided to include a few special readers. I ran some basic stats from the blog and picked the top 5 most active readers (readers that posted the most comments) on the blog. Thankfully they are all good friends and live locally so I was able to make them a treat.

Chocolate Cupcakes was my treat of choice! I found this recipe on Elena’s Pantry website. I love that website and can’t wait to get a copy of her book!!

Ingredients:
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup cacao powder
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
¼ cup grape seed oil
½ cup agave nectar

Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, cacao powder, salt and baking soda.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil and agave.
Blend dry ingredients into wet ingredients thoroughly. This will also serve as an arm workout!
Line a cupcake tin with paper liners and scoop a scant ¼ cup into each.
Bake at 375° for 20-22 minutes.

Makes about 7-9 cupcakes. For frosting I just used store-bought sugar-free chocolate frosting.

Hope you guys enjoyed it! Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine’s day!
