Keto Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Hazelnut Frosting

This Chocolate Keto Cupcake recipe is made with coconut flour to keep this dessert low carb and gluten-free, then topped with a sugar-free Keto chocolate buttercream frosting and a hint of hazelnut.

How to Make Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

To make these easy Keto cupcakes, you’ll first combine the melted butter, unsweetened Cacao powder. Once that is mixed well and has cooled you will add in the eggs and vanilla. Give that a quick mix and then add in the coconut flour, Natural Sugar-free Sweetener, baking powder, and unsweetened almond milk

Divide your coconut flour cupcake batter evenly among twelve muffin tins and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center of cupcakes, if it is clean when you pull it out the cupcakes are done!

Coconut Flour Keto Cupcakes

For this recipe, I used Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour. Coconut Flour is perfect for keto cupcakes and other low carb desserts because it’s high and fiber, grain free, gluten free and I love the flavor the coconut flour adds.

Bob’s Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour also has no preservatives, additives or chemicals, which is the main reason I love and recommend this brand.

If you want your Keto cupcakes also to be gluten-free be sure to get gluten-free baking powder

How to make Chocolate Keto Frosting

This Keto frosting recipe only requires a few keto friendly ingredients; grass-fed unsalted butter, Lankanto Suntella, salt, Lakanto Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener, and Keto friendly hazelnut creamer.

Lakanto Suntella is a sugar-free chocolate spread, kind of like Keto Friendly Nutella. Suntella is nut-free, so it doesn’t actually have hazelnuts. Plus it is gluten-free and dairy-free too.

Keto Cupcakes

I typically eat it from the jar, but I figured it was time to find another use for it and it works perfectly for making Keto Chocolate Cupcake frosting.

Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener is a perfect substitute for confectioners sugar in Keto desserts. The consistency is spot on, but it is two times sweeter than sugar, so don’t go overboard.

As far as the hazelnut creamer (yes, coffee creamer) be sure you grab one that is Keto Friendly. I previously wrote an article What Is The Best Keto Coffee Creamer? so you’ll know what ingredients to look out for.

My top two picks would be Nut Pods Dairy Free Hazelnut Creamer or Better Half Coconut Cream & Almond Milk Hazelnut Creamer

The first step to making the Keto Chocolate frosting is to beat the butter until it is smooth. Then add in the Lakanto Suntella and salt, beat until it is all blended. 


Now, add the Lakanto Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener,


Add the Hazelnut creamer and beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. If frosting is not fluffy stick it in the fridge for about twenty minutes and it will firm up. You can also top your cupcakes with crushed up hazelnuts for a nice tasty garnish.
