    If you put erythritol through a coffee grinder it makes a great powdered sugar. Mix it with a pinch of stevia for added sweetness. :)

    I know exactly what you mean about having envy over Karina’s frosting…oh man! Here’s a recipe for vanilla frosting that my niece just tried and said it works well. Now we need to make it chocolaty…I’ll be working on that:

    3 egg whites
    2/3 cup of agave nectar
    pinch of salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Put the unbeaten egg whites, honey, and salt into the top of a double boiler over hot water. Beat with an electric beater on medium to high speed, while you bring the water to a boil. Continue to beat for 7 minutes, or until the mixture forms soft mounds. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla slowly and continue beating until frosting is stiff enough to hold it’s shape.

    Kim – Thanks so much for sharing that recipe. Egg whites are much easier to work with without any sugar. I’m going to give this a try and see how it goes. :)

    What great recipes. Sugar and flour are deinite problems for me. When I don’t eat them I lose weight- when I do, I gain.

    Enjoyed visiting,

    Laura, we must be cut from the same cloth. It’s a tough place to be but at least you have the awareness and can start to take the right action.

    Those look great! So, now if I wanted to do it, non-gluten free, would I just sub regular or whole wheat flour for the gluten-free baking mix?
    Thanks! :)

    Hi Miss Amanda,

    So good to hear from you. Hope the shopping is going well…I did *better* this week but still nothing like you.

    Yes, you can sub another flour if you’re going to use agave. Taking out the agave is a different story because it’s a liquid and you need to have the right liquid to dry ingredients ratio. If you take out the agave, increase the flour so you have a good cupcake consistency.

THIS one was the one we couldn’t wait to try! i came across your website a few months ago and what really drew me in was the picture of the cupcake at the top! i LOVE baked goods and since i’ve been g&s free i’ve been missing them. but these are AWESOME!!! sooooo gooooood! :) i just made my 2nd batch last friday, adding some applesauce to make em a little more moist, and they are the BEST! thanks for a great website, it’s been so helpful!!

    Excited about this recipe. Question: is the coffee optional? Is it just for taste or is it important for the structure? I’m not a coffee fan, so I just don’t want it to taste like coffee.

    thanks!

    Amy Reply:

    @Jen, The coffee just enhances the chocolate flavor. You can’t taste it. It won’t be a problem at all if you omit it.

    I believe agave nectar contains a lot of sugar (fructose). Just what I’ve read in a book about quitting sugar.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Erica, Yes, it has fructose. I use unrefined sugars – no cane sugar products. I can’t eat any cane sugar but I can do coconut palm sugar, honey, agave, and some other sweeteners in moderation.
