Chocolate Cupcakes with Whipped Peanut Butter Icing

Only 4 net carbs per cupcake!

Chocolate and peanut butter together is a craving that I have on a regular basis! These cupcakes definately satisfy that craving. Coconut flour is amazing and an absolute must for low carb baking. It soaks up the moisture of the eggs and turns into something wonderful! The addition of sour cream makes them even more moist and delicious. The texture of these cupcakes is so close to the real thing, and the creamy peanut butter icing goes perfect with them. I store them in the fridge or freezer for a treat that’s ready anytime of the day!
