This recipe might be gluten-free but let me start by writing they’re not calorie-free sadly however I’ve used honey instead of sugar and high quality cocoa powder so they really are a pretty healthy treat that won’t skyrocket your blood sugar!
As it’s Valentine’s Day, these really are a perfect offering for a loved one, your kids included of course, or simply for yourself (self-love is important too you know, hey shush you naughty ones at the back!) So, what you waiting for? Go get your bake on and treat yourself…
Quick, easy and super-gorgeous to look at- and eat of course, you guys will definitely fall in love with the recipe below.
Makes 12 cupcakes

- 3 free range large eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 150 g Self Raising Gluten-free flour
- 50 g high quality cocoa powder, sifted

You will either need 12 paper cake cases.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then the flour, cocoa powder and milk, stirring.
Half the paper cases or pour into the cake tin and bake for 20 minutes.
