Best Chocolate Cupcakes Ever with Peanut Butter Frosting For Two

Whew! That title is a mouthful! 

Hey guys!

I am SO excited to be bringing you all this recipe! It is officially, the first ever Gluten Free dessert on Little Miracles!


These cupcakes are little pillows of chocolatey goodness! So moist and light, that I really don’t think I’ll be going back to regular chocolate cupcakes anytime soon! I’m serious!

These are so incredibly moist! Four cupcakes are definitely not enough!


I am going to keep working on these and try to make them refined sugar free, but this recipe is definitely a keeper!

Super simple too! You just need two bowls, one to mix all the dry ingredients, one for all the wet ingredients except for the coffee. Bake for about 12 minutes and voilà! 

You’ll be biting into moist, chocolatey goodness in just minutes!


The peanut butter buttercream frosting complements the chocolate cupcake perfectly, but you can top it with ganache or whipped cream, whatever you prefer!
