Ingredients
Double Chocolate Keto Cupcakes 2.2 : 1
Buttercream Frosting 5.7 : 1
Instructions
  1. Start by combining all the dry ingredients, Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Truvia, Unsweetened Cocoa Chocolate, Baking Powder and Salt. One trick I do to save time (but is not as accurate), is to put a large bowl on the digital scale and then tear it back to zero after each dry ingredient is added.
  2. In a separate bowl combine heavy cream and melted or softened butter with a hand mixer.
  3. Once combined add the eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Scoop into silicone muffin molds and top with Lily’s Chocolate Chips
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Enjoy!
Buttercream Frosting 5.7 : 1

  3. Refrigerate for a few minutes to harden if needed. Spread onto the cupcakes.
  4. Sprinkle with Truvia. Add food coloring to the Truvia for fun colors.

And hope to raise awareness and understanding of the non-epileptic form of Glut1 DS. Drake’s Glut1 journey started at the age of 3 with episodes of Ataxia and Dyskinesia. Now at the age of 8 he is 2 years symptom-free — thanks to the right diagnosis and the ketogenic diet.
