Low Carb Keto Chocolate Pistachio Cupcake Recipe:
[bs_icon name=”glyphicon glyphicon-cutlery”] Servings: 12
- 1 2/3 cups almond flour, I use this brand
- 2/3 cup dark cocoa, I use this brand
- 1/4 cup coconut flour, I use this brand
- 1/4 cup egg white protein powder, I use this brand
- 1 tbsp instant coffee is optional, improves chocolate flavor, I use this brand
- 2/3 tbsp baking powder, I use this brand
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, I use this brand
- 2/3 cup Swerve Sweetener, I use this brand
- 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract, I use this brand
- 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, I use this brand
For the Cream:
- 50 g pistachios, unsalted
- 200 g cream cheese
- 200 g of Greek yogurt
- Unflavored Gelatin, I use this brand
- lemon juice, to taste
- Swerve Sweetener, to taste, I use this brand
- green food coloring (if necessary, to taste)
- Pistachios chopped, for garnish
For Chocolate Cupcake:
- Preheat the oven to 325F and line 12 muffins cups with paper liners (parchment ones are best for non-stackability).
- In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut flour, meringue powder, instant coffee, baking powder, and salt.
- In a large bowl, beat coconut oil with sweetener until well combined. Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Combine the yolks and vanilla extract.
- Beat in half of the almond flour mixture, and then almond milk. Beat in remaining almond flour mixture until well combined.
- Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full with batter and bake 18 to 22 minutes, until just firm to the touch and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Remove and let cool for 10 minutes in a pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Grind the pistachios and place them in a bowl. Add the cream cheese and the Greek yogurt. Mix everything well. Prepare the gelatine according to the package instructions and add it to the pistachio paste. Add sweetener and lemon juice to taste.
- If the cream is firm, apply with a syringe bag.
- Finally, sprinkle chopped pistachios on top. Serve and enjoy!

I'm wondering what amounts of gelatin we use for the pistachio cream? instructions say to prepare gelatin according to package..but there are no amounts listed.. (also a recommendation of minimum amounts of lemon juice and powdered sweetener?) thanks!
