I’ve seriously been holding off on making a keto cupcake recipe because I just did not think there could exist a keto cupcake recipe that would actually remind me of a regular cupcake full of sugar.

Welp, I was wrong, so here’s my very first contribution to the keto cupcake world:

Good enough that I totally felt no shame sharing some of these bad boys with my non-keto friends. You all know what I mean.

They loved them!

And my kids (the true test) loved them, too. My tiny little daughter went back for a second cupcake!

Making the Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

The base on these low carb chocolate PB cupcakes is unique. I combined flax seed with pumpkin, peanut butter, and peanut flour to create a rich, dense cupcake. With sugar free chocolate chips, of course.

(I use Lily’s chocolate chips.)

The peanut butter frosting is mainly butter, peanut butter, and peanut flour. It holds together really well and tastes amazing!

How to Pipe Keto Frosting without Cake Decorating Equipment

When you pipe frosting, you normally need a few pieces of equipment. But really, you don’t.

When I frosted mine, I had to dig around for my cake decorating supplies (the joys of moving—there are some things you’ll never find again!).

If you like the winning combo of chocolate and peanut butter, try these Keto Peanut Butter Cups! They have an extra added ingredient to gently aid in keto constipation and are only 1 net carb!

I found my tips, but not my bags. So I improvised. I used my big star tip with a plain old plastic storage bag. I just cut a hole in the corner of the bag, stuck the tip in, put the ring over top of that, and then filled the bag with frosting, and voila! Delicious AND good-looking cupcakes!

But you don’t even need a tip, either. You can make pretty cupcakes with just a plastic baggie with a corner cut out.

Try it out and see how easy it is to pipe frosting using just a plastic baggie!

Suggestions for Ketogenic Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

  • If you’re having trouble with the consistency of your frosting (too soft), go ahead and put it in the refrigerator for ten minutes or so to stiffen it up. This is especially helpful if you plan on piping it at all.
  • You’ll want to store the cupcakes in the refrigerator or a cool place if you don’t want the frosting to lose its shape. But don’t worry! Leave them on the counter at room temperature for 20 minutes and they’ll soften right up! Although I enjoy biting into the buttery frosting right out of the fridge, too!
  • These cupcakes are rich. I know, it’s keto, and I probably don’t have to remind you. But they’re incredibly filling. When I say my tiny, skinny daughter went back for a second cupcake, what I mean is I was shocked. I can only eat one at a time. So they’d be great as mini cupcakes, too!
  • The sugar free chocolate chips I like to use are Lily’s chocolate chips, but you can also get chocolate chips from ChocZero!
  • I didn’t take any pic of this, but you can also use silicone cupcake cups. I did experiment with my silicone cups for this recipe and they came out beautifully, with no chunks left in the cup.
