Sugar Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Homemade Caramel

I volunteered to bring cupcakes to a party for some expectant mom friends, one of whom had gestational diabetes, so I needed a sugar-free option. These cupcakes hit the spot!

Sugar Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Homemade Caramel


1/2 cup raw Almonds or Pecans, ground (or you can use Almond Meal)
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
Pinch Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 cup Erythritol - I bought Z-sweet from amazon

Mix the above well, then add:

2 T Butter, melted
1 Egg, beaten
1/4 tsp Vanilla
2 T Water as needed

Preheat oven to 350*. Spoon batter into cupcake liners. It's enough for about 6 mini, or 4 regular cupcakes. Bake about 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Homemade Caramel with Agave:

1 1/2 cups Agave (I used light)
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
3 Tbsp Butter
1/8 tsp Salt

Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and heat on medium-high until it comes to a boil, stirring well. Reduce heat to medium so it still boils but isn't quite so violent, and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently. If you cook it for less time, it'll be more of a sauce and you can store it in a jar in the fridge.
