Jon received some great news yesterday, and as I shared on our Facebook Page, to celebrate, I made him one of his favorite meals and for dessert -Chocolate Cupcakes with a "Sunbutter" Icing. What? Me? Cupcakes? Well, these aren't your ordinary grocery bakery cupcakes. There are 100% organic, high-quality fair-trade chocolate, grain-free cupcakes. Topped with a "sunbutter" icing (I don't actually like Sunbutter brand, and prefer Once Again's Sunflower Seed Butter), these things looked and tasted sinful but left us with nearly zero guilt.
Just because these are "sinless" though does not mean I recommend eating them everyday (although I'm sure Jon will do so until the batch is gone haha). However, if we are going to indulge, I try to make sure we do so without inflicting too much damage or shock on our bodies. I prefer to develop options that spike my blood sugar as little as possible and that leave me feeling satisfied, not insatiable, like white flour and white sugar will do. These are made with 85% Cacao Dark Chocolate, Coconut Palm Sugar, Grass-Fed Pastured Eggs and Butter, Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil, Coconut Flour, Sunflower Seed Butter, and a few other high quality ingredients, again, 100% Organic. I must say, they are probably nowhere near as sweet as your local bakeshop but they are divine, especially for someone who does not consume sugary or sweet foods very often.
I hope you enjoy this treat as much as we did!
