Double Chocolate Love Cupcakes
with Linwoods Ground Flaxseed, Cocoa, Strawberries & Blueberries blend
As the holidays began a few months ago, I was determined to find recipes and ingredients that made my baking taste great but only contain organic and beneficial ingredients. Substituting healthier foods for fatty ones or adding beneficial ingredients can help make eating the sweets a little less guilty feeling. One ingredient I try to sneak into foods for the entire family often is flaxseed. The fiber in flaxseed is so plentiful and great for the digestive system. For this recipe I used the Chocolate Love Cake recipe and tweaked it a tad to make cupcakes and using ingredients I had already. You can find the original Chocolate Love Cake recipe at Linwoods recipe page, but I will leave my exact recipe below.
After I make my cupcake batter, I add 2 TBS of the Linwoods Ground Flaxseed, Cocoa, Strawberries & Blueberries blend. This blend tastes great and packs some fiber and antioxidants into these cupcakes. The seeds are ground so you do not get the seed texture in your cupcakes, They make the cupcakes thick and filling as well as delicious! I also stir 1 tbsp of this blend into cream cheese frosting before I frost the cupcakes for some color to the frosting and added nutrients. You can see the specs from the blend in the icing, but you still get the same icing texture.
Here is my cupcake recipe that is based off of the Linwoods Chocolate Love cake with filling
