Let's get Low Carb - Almond Cupcakes


I made an decision- my BF started low carb last year and it was really hard for me to bake all those nice "unhealthy" recipes (most of them without trying). yeahh I'm pretty supportive :( But here we go I'll started searching for low carb & gluten free recipes..you are welcome to follow me on my low carb journey.I was pretty happy to find gluten free and low carb recipes... so i started cooking & baking.
I was pretty surprised how good it went and of course it's easy to make.

So here's my first recipe.
I started with a almond chocolate Cupcake (of course cupcake! Can't live without) with a creamy vanilla frosting. Pretty easy pretty yummie! And a lot of low-carbs- wehehhehe


What you'll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp Natron
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 200 gr Almonds (grinded)
  • 10 gr dark chocolate(100gr/19 carbs)(chopped)

3 now mix the almonds with the egg yolk mixture and add the chopped chocolate.
