Chocolate Frosting:


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with paper cups. I'm using a silicon muffin pan, but you can use any regular pan and paper liners if you wish.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl over simmering water (double boiler) and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • Whisk the egg, coconut oil, coconut milk and honey into the melted chocolate until smooth.
  • In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, cacao powder and baking soda. 
  • Using a rubber spatula gently mix almond flour mixture with melted chocolate mixture to form a batter.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups filling each to the top.
  • Cut the tops off of 6 strawberries and insert one in each cupcake, pointy side down.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 22 minutes. Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack before frosting.

Chocolate Frosting:

  • Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. Once melted remove it from the heat and mix the coconut milk until smooth.
