I'm a chocolate-loving nutritionist, pre & postnatal coach, doula and let's face it- total birth nerd 🤓. I'm here to help you cut through mommy-marketing and pinterest perfection to confidently cultivate a pregnancy and postpartum experience you totally love.
It’s my birthday this week! WAHOO! And to celebrate 30 years of awesome, I’m sharing this really delightful grain-free cupcake recipe. It also happens to be free from tree nuts and refined sugar. Hot damn.
To achieve their pinkish chocolatey hue, these cupcakes feature pureed steamed BEETS! Don’t worry, their earthy flavor is masked by chocolate, so you are only aware of their presence by the beautiful color they lend to the batter.
Top these sweet treats with your favorite cream cheese frosting and maybe a sprinkle or two for more festiveness.
Grain-Free Red Velvet Cupcakes
Delicious dark chocolate cupcakes free, from grains and nuts, get their pinkish hue from the secret ingredient: beets! Don't worry, you can't taste them, they make their presence known only in color and nutrient density. I like to pair these with lemony cream cheese frosting!
