Is that even possible? Yes, it is! No sugar, no butter, no regular flour. You could even say that these are very healthy cupcakes! As long as you don’t eat the entire batch in one sitting, of course ;) For these I used stevia instead of sugar (my enemy), oat flour instead of regular flour and substituted Greek yoghurt for butter. Hell yeah, a healthier version of cupcakes! And my my my, they were good. I adapted a recipe from a cupcake/baking book that I have. I’ll be adapting more recipes in the future, it’s fun to try to make these things healthy ;) My recipe makes 6 cupcakes.
- 2½ tablespoons (tbsp) of Greek yoghurt
- 4 tbsp stevia (I use granulated stevia, which is a kind of powder)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp milk (I used almond milk)
- ½ tbsp raw cacao nibs
- 5½ tbsp oat flour (for oat flour: grind regular oats in a blender)
- ½-1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
For the Dutchies: where do I get some of those ingredients? You can find both stevia and almond milk at Albert Heijn. The raw cacao nibs you can find at natuurwinkels, like Ekoplaza.
Before you start, preheat your oven to 200˚C. The rest is really super simple. There isn’t really a certain order to follow when mixing the ingredients. Just start with the Greek yoghurt and add everything except the raw cacao nibs, mix until smooth and then add the nibs. Use a spoon to mix them in. Then it gets even simpler ;) Add the mixture to 6 cupcakes liners and put them in the oven for about 20 minutes. That’s it! Oh, don’t forget to let them cool before eating them! If you have even more patience: they taste even better the next day!
Want some frosting?
To make the cupcakes even more tasty I made a maple-cashew frosting. I just mixed 1½ tablespoon of Greek yoghurt with a tablespoon of cashew butter and some maple syrup. So, so good. It’s also really good without the cupcake, shhh ;)
