It’s a super secret virtual surprise party!

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cupcakes for 2

Happy 40th Birthday Regan!

I had the pleasure of meeting Regan at Blog Brulee this past September. This woman seriously does it all – Owner of Healthy Aperture, Recipe ReDux, RDs4Disclosure, & co-founder of Blog Brulee. She is a wonderful woman and puts so much hard work and dedication into all the work she does. She had truly opened so many doors for Registered Dietitian’s especially in the internet world.
Regan – You have inspired me in so many ways and I hope to be as accomplished as you are one day! Happy Birthday!
Now, back to these cupcakes.

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cupcakes for 2

Since it’s Regan birthday, this birthday party was inspired by her amazing Gluten Free desserts like her,  SugarFree GlutenFree Lemon-Nut Sandies, Mulled Wine Raisin Bread, and Gluten-Free Classic Chocolate Pound Cake. So we were inspired to bring a gluten free treat to the party too!
I’ve experimented with coconut flour in the past to create GF treats. The one thing I noticed after a complete recipe fail, that coconut flour sucks up any moisture, so you have to make sure to have enough wet ingredients.
Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cupcakes for 2
I am a total chocolate lover, so of course I made a chocolate on chocolate cupcake. This is perfect for when you are craving a chocolately treat, but don’t want to make a whole batch of something. And perfect for a special homemade dinner date night with a dessert just for 2!

An Apple a Day {Recipe Round-up}

I know most people (including myself) are all about pumpkin this time of year, but how bout them apples? Amongst the assortment of different varieties of apples, honeycrisp apples are the ones I get the most excited about each year during apple season!
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples are loaded with vitamin C and fiber, can help satisfy hunger, promotes a healthy heart, and provide a source of antioxidants.
