Healthy Chocolate Cupcakes

  • AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH chocolate! Yes. I made more dessert for Steven to take to the office. He's been pretty spoiled the last few weeks :) These cupcakes aren't clean but are healthy and delicious!

    Ingredients
    1 cup nonfat/low fat/nondairy milk
    1 egg, large
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
    1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Then, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Whisk. In a medium size bowl, combine wet ingredients. Mix.
    3. Gradually add wet ingredients to dry, combining with a mixer or wooden spoon, until all lumps are gone.
    4. Fill each cupcake about 3/4 of the way with the batter. Makes 12.
    5. Bake for 18 minutes or until set. Test cupcake with a toothpick (it shouldn't have anything on it). Let cool completely before applying the frosting. I suggest at least 30 minutes!

Ingredients for Frosting

6-ounce less fat cream cheese, room temperature (I used 4 oz Laughing Cow cheese and 2 oz fat free cream   cheese)

1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt

1/2 cup Stevia, packed

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions for Icing

  1. In a large bowl, using a hand held mixer, combine cream cheese, sour cream, and confectioner sugar. Mix until there are no lumps. 
  2. Let sit in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  3. Once completely chilled, transfer to a piping bag and pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes. Place a fresh raspberry on top for garnish.
