Chocolate cupcakes are LIFE. Also, paleo chocolate cupcakes are even better. That mountain of fudgey frosting on top of that super moist, fluffy, best ever black out chocolate cupcakes… um, helloooo dessert!

I took some inspiration from one of my most popular paleo brownie recipes and evolved those babies into some double chocolate cupcakes worthy of sprinkles. Did you know you can get all natural sprinkles? Now, they aren’t paleo, but if you are looking for a healthier festive way to spice up your cupcake life, these are the natural sprinkles I always have in stock in my cupboards (also, here are the chocolate ones!!!).

Getting every last drop of cake batter and gooey fudgey frosting is ESSENTIAL, so I pulled out my favorite spatulas for the job- Di Oro’s black silicone spatulas. I cannot stress how important it is to find the right spatula for licking off the last drops of cake batter ;). Yup, I’m one of those. Leave no man behind- or in this case, leave no chocolate goodness behind!! Here’s my favorite friend in the kitchen when it comes to baking cupcakes. Use code, “PALEODIORO” for an extra 40% off! Makes great Christmas gifts, just sayin’.

Paleo Diet + Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes were one of the very first things I made once I turned onto the paleo diet. Never once have they let me down. Always rich. Always decadent and addicting. And always, always my favorite dessert ever.

My sister and I used to have midnight baking and movie marathons, loading our kitchen counters with way too many batches of mini chocolate and vanilla paleo cupcakes… and then of course there was the problematic situation of two teenage girls mixed with chocolate frosting overload, 90’s tv shows, flannel pj’s and bare feet. Partaaaay all night long!

Recipe Notes

Here are the natural sprinkles I recommend- mixed or chocolate.

Ingredients
Cupcakes
Frosting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a stand mixer or by hand combine all ingredients for cupcakes and mix until the batter is smooth.
  3. Use an ice-cream scoop to fill the muffin liners 2/3 way full. Bake on 350F for 25 minutes until cooked- test by inserting a clean toothpick or knife into the center of a cupcake, if it comes out clean they are done. Allow cupcakes to cool before frosting.
  4. Prepare a double boiler and bring heat to a low simmer. Melt all ingredients for the frosting together in the double boiler. Then beat with an electric mixer for about 1 minute (I use my KitchenAid). Transfer the bowl of frosting (it will be like a thick liquid) to the fridge to chill for about 1 hour until it thickens (stirring on occasion). Whip frosting again before piping onto cupcakes.

    Do you think I could sub a few dates for the coconut sugar?? (we’re on Whole30 right now, but I’d still love to serve a compliant dessert for my daughter’s birthday party.) Thanks!

    These turned out so good! I switched out the regular peanut butter for coconut peanut butter in the frosting. I was so pleased with these beautiful little treat I made a second batch and shipped them to my sister for her birthday!!! Thank you Kaylie!

    These look super yummy, I’m just wondering if they are very coconut tasting? My hubby doesn’t like coconut in everything, while I don’t mind it at all. But I would like to make something he’ll enjoy that’s healthier but still tastes indulgent and chocolatey.

    Didn’t read nutritional data till after I went out and bought these expensive ingredients and mixed the cupcakes. I haven’t tasted them yet but I could have had real brownies or cupcakes and it would have been less carbs and less sugars. Very disappointing.

      Hi Dianna, it might be prematurely cooking your eggs in the batter if you are really heating up the oil and then not mixing it into the batter right away. I would suggest heating coconut oil over low heat then mixing right away. 🙂 Best of luck!

    What kind of chocolate chips do you use? Semi-sweet? Because there is no sweetener in the frosting? Not unsweetened is guess.

    I am thinking of making these for my son’s first birthday. Since that much cocoa would be a lot for a little guy, do you think it would would to sub half the cocoa for coconut flour? Thanks 🙂

    These are delicious!!! Thank you!
    I subbed the 1 cup of coconut sugar for 1/2 a cup of coconut sugar & 1/4 of maple surup
    So Yummy!!! I made for my hubby’s birthday & I’m going to make for my daughters.
    Do you have a birthday cake version of any kind?
    Thanks

    I halved the recipe to try them out and I found them a little dry 🙁 Your description says they come out moist though- just wondering if you had any suggestions for next time??

    Okay, I usually don’t do recipe comments, but being paleo and needing dessert recipes is hard!! So here’s my take! I made these for my daughters birthday party, and I added 1/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chunks to the batter, and I forgot to add the coconut milk to the recipe because I suck. They still turned out so wonderfully that my VERY non-paleo cousin and my daughter both asked for another one! They are so moist and perfect!!! I wouldn’t have known they weren’t traditional cupcakes. I served them with a coconut frosting that I found a recipe for, and thy tasted like German chocolate cupcakes. BE STILL MY HEART. But seriously, these will forever be the cupcakes I make from this point forward. I ate one today, and even being day old, they were fantastic!!

    Hi there , I really want to try to make these this weekend- my question is could I sub out the eggs for an egg substitute mix I bought? My son has an egg allergy and members of my family are gluten free, so I’d love to just do one recipe! Thanks so much!

    I’m so excited to try this recipe! I have had the worst chocolate cravings for the past 3 days! I just ordered a kitchen-aid stand mixer, so only a couple more days of waiting! I wanted to ask your opinion on subbing the coconut oil for clarified butter? Only because the last time I baked with coconut flour, coconut milk and coconut oil, the coconut flavor was so overpowering, although not sure that would be the case in this recipe? Anyway, thanks so much for posting this, Kaylie!
