Recipe: Chocolate Raspberry-Filled Cupcakes

Valentines day is just around the corner and we all want to shower (and be showered by!) our loved ones with love and sweet treats. We're all about the 80/20 around here-- there's nothing wrong with the occasional treat! But if you could easily create something just as yummy without the unnecessary additives, why not?! Rather than loading your family and friends up with sugary, and possibly chemically-laden sweets, share these simple, clean grain-free cupcakes- I promise they won't even know they're clean! Have a Happy Valentines Day fit family, I hope it is filled with an abundance of love and sweetness- the chocolate kind and otherwise. xo Kirstin Chocolate Raspberry-Filled Cupcakes Makes 12 1/2 cup coconut flour 1/4 cup cocoa powder 1/2 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 cup melted honey 1/2 cup melted coconut oil 6 eggs 6 tbsp all-natural raspberry jam or jelly chocolate ganache (recipe below) 1/2 pint organic raspberries, for topping 1.
