As the snow falls along with the temperature, it’s time to heat up the oven and whip up some baked goods. To indulge in Healthy Baking, substitute traditional ingredients with superfoods from Nutiva, the world’s leading brand of organic and non-gmo hemp, coconut, chia, and red palm.

Here’s our recipe for:

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

INGREDIENTS:"Nutiva Double Chocolate Cupcakes"

1/3 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour

1/4 tsp Baking Soda

1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

1/4 tsp Sea Salt

1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Buttery Spread

1 1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar

3 Eggs

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup Milk (can be substituted with almond, hemp, or coconut milk)

1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (tossed in flour)


Preheat oven to 350°F and line cupcake tin with cupcake liners.

Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together coconut sugar and buttery spread. This mixture will be soft, fluffy, and crumbly. Whisk in vanilla extract, then whisk in eggs one at a time until fully incorporated.

Alternate sifting dry mixture and milk into sugar, butter, and egg mix.

Fold in chocolate chips, mixing well to distribute them evenly.

Scoop batter into cups, filling each halfway and mixing intermittently to keep chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom.

Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out cleanly from the center of a cupcake.

Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before frosting and serving.

Nutiva has a wide variety of products that can be used when baking. Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar and Organic Coconut Flour are healthy substitutes in most recipes. To replace butter, try using Nutiva Organic Shortening, Nutiva Organic Vegan Buttery Spread or Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil for a healthier, guilt-free option.
