Easy Whole Wheat Cupcakes for Two

Sometimes I crave a cupcake. Something small, full of sugar, and pretty-looking. However, there’s always that feeling of “well what’s the point in making a dozen cupcakes right now” that prevents you from doing so. I understand fully, no one should commit to having that many sweets on hand.

Instead, make just two cupcakes. I found a recipe for two and changed it around a bit so that it’s made with whole wheat flour and with chocolate. Here’s what I did:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the egg white, sugar, and coconut oil. Mix in the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and milk. Get two cupcake liners, and put them in a muffin pan. Fill each liner equally. Decorate with store bought frosting.

This recipe is good to have on hand, sometimes a cupcake is really just needed. With this recipe, the cupcake will be a little more guilt free!

My roommate gave me some pink frosting she made for a bake sale she’s participating in, I also added some black sprinkles leftover from Halloween and some sugar I mixed red food dye with. Part of the desire for a cupcake┬áincludes havi
