The Best Sugar and Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes are so yummy, you might feel a little bit guilty when eating them but don’t! They are guilt free and delicious- at the same time! Imagine, sugar-free gluten-free delight.

My husband was diagnosed a little over a year ago with type 2 diabetes. It’s been an interesting ride changing our eating habits and learning about this disease. When his birthday came around this year I wanted to make a delicious dessert that was healthy for him, but also reminded him of the brownies he would eat every year for his birthday.

Sugar-Free and Gluten-Free

I found exactly what I was looking for with these muffins. They are delicious, healthy and pretty!
