How to make Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Add a Keto frosting, and enjoy! 

Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

1-1/2 cups blanched, superfine almond flour
3/4 cup KETO:SWEET Granular Sweetener (such as erythritol) 
6 tablespoons cocoa powder 
1/2 teaspoon xantham gum
2 teaspoons baking powder 
3 eggs 
1/2 cup sour cream 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon refined coconut oil, melted


1. Preheat oven to 350º.  Line 12-count cupcake tin with silicone, foil, or paper cupcake liners. If using foil or paper liners, spray them with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a small bowl whisk together dry ingredients: almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, xantham gum, and baking powder. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract and salt until well-blended.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients, and, using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir together until combined, about 30 strokes. Fold in melted coconut oil. 
5. Divide batter evenly among the 12 cupcake cups, and bake 20 – 24 minutes. When they are finished, cupcakes will have a crackly appearance on top, and they will yield to gentle pressure when touched.  Remove and let cool completely. 
6. Add a Keto frosting, and enjoy! 


  • Xantham gum helps the cupcakes stay moist and chewy.
  • Keto Chocolate Cupcakes store well in an air-tight container for two days.
