After pulling the cupcakes from the oven and smelling their tantalizing rich cocoa aroma for what felt like years as they cooled on the counter, I filled a piping bag with the sweet light brown frosting, sneaking a taste from the spatula, and bent over the first treat, which sent the butterflies into a frenzy, threatening to burst out of my chest. I reminded myself. I surveyed my tall frosting swirls, selected the three that looked the best, and carefully carried those cupcakes over to the table. After scattering a few baby pink and pastel purple sprinkles around the table, I turned on my camera, peered through the viewfinder, and pressed my finger down on the shutter before checking the image on the tiny digital display.
Then repeated. Again and again and again, until I finally captured the perfect shot.

You can see a special sneak peek preview here and order a copy too! The recipe begins with two key ingredients: white whole wheat flour and unsweetened cocoa powder. White whole wheat flour is made by finely grinding a special type of white wheat, whereas regular whole wheat flour comes from a heartier variety of red wheat. This gives white whole wheat flour a lighter taste and texture, similar to that of all-purpose flour, but it still has the same health benefits as regular whole wheat flour.
I highly recommend the latter! I use it every day! Too much cocoa powder will dry out your cupcakes and make them taste bitter, but my trusty kitchen scale ensures that the cupcakes turn out perfectly tender and rich every time. Be sure to use the good stuff! Low-fat cupcakes tend to stick to liners like superglue, so I have a special trick to get around that… Coat the cupcake liners with nonstick cooking spray!
And if the cupcakes still stick more than they should, seal them inside of an airtight container for at least 24 hours to help loosen the liners a little more. And now for my favorite chocolate frosting! You just need a fork—no mixers required—which makes clean-up a breeze! This is the kind that I buy because I love its warm vanilla flavor.
You can find it at many health-oriented grocery stores, as well as online. Time to celebrate the Healthier Chocolate Treats cookbook! And maybe with a second cupcake too… Or even a third! When you bake yours, remember to snap a picture and share it with me on Instagram using amyshealthybaking and tagging amyshealtybaking IN the photo! Amy, the sample batch did not turn out well. Indeed, the scale is absolutely essential for measuring the unsweetened coco for this recipe because the measuring cup method resulted in very bitter cupcakes and frosting!
Oh no!! When you used measuring cups, did you scoop the cocoa powder directly from the container? Also, which frosting recipe of mine did you use — this one or the yogurt-based one? Finally, did you make any modifications to the recipe, including those listed in the Notes section? It sounds lovely! Can you replace greek yoghurt in any way? Perhaps using milk? I hope you can help Thank you.
