Keto Chocolate Cupcakes with Avocado ButtercreamPin recipeFollow us 85.6k

Perfect for any special occasion, these keto chocolate cupcakes are made extra delicious with an easy avocado “buttercream”. The avocado adds a nice dose of healthy fats as well as making the frosting super creamy.

Be sure to use very ripe avocados as they need to be able to mash into a super smooth frosting. These low-carb cupcakes are also dairy-free but 100% decadent. For an extra kick you could add in a bit of cinnamon and cayenne pepper for a Mexican chocolate style cupcake.
