A healthy pregnancy eating plan doesn’t have to be boring! These delicious, Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes Rich Caramel Frosting are sure to satisfy even the strongest sugar cravings.
Cupcakes are generally a sweet indulgence full of refined sugar, flour and butter with very little nutrition. They are also a common pregnancy craving.
These delicious gluten free chocolate cupcakes with fluffy caramel frosting will satisfy your sweet tooth, while providing essential nutrients for you and your baby.
Buckwheat flour is free of gluten and high in protein, fibre and B-vitamins. It’s an ancient grain that is easily digested and is known for producing a light and fluffy bake. It’s also high in manganese, which is an important mineral for forming healthy bones in your baby.
The frosting is particularly decadent and sweet, yet has no added sugar! The key ingredients are cashews (high in protein for building cells for you and your growing baby) and dates (high in fibre to help with pregnancy bloating and constipation).
This versatile recipe can be used to create a layer cake instead of cupcakes, or the frosting recipe can be used with other healthy pregnancy baking recipes.
