Super light, fluffy and (dare I say it?) moist chocolate cupcakes piled high with the creamiest, dreamiest chocolate frosting ever. I swear, these chocolate zucchini cupcakes taste so good you’ll never bother with ordinary cupcakes ever again. And the best part of it all is that they’re healthy! Yes, healthy chocolate cupcakes are now a thing. Enjoy!
Sometimes there’s no getting around it: you need a chocolate cupcake. You could go out to the bakery and buy a cupcake, but with all the frosting, that could be like 600 calories. You could make a batch of skinny cupcakes, but most recipes make at least 12, and a dozen cupcakes is something no one should ever be left alone with. So what’s a hungry chocolate-lover to do? Make a single-serving healthy chocolate cupcake for one, that’s what!
I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make these healthy oatmeal cupcakes. I’ve seen all sorts of variations on Pinterest, but it wasn’t until last weekend that I made a batch for myself. I love oats – from traditional bowls of steaming hot breakfast oatmeal and the less traditional overnight oats to oatmeal muffins and granola bars, so it’s no real surprise that I love these baked oatmeal cupcakes, too. And if you love healthy sweet treats that taste like dessert but are nutritious enough for breakfast, then you’ll love these, too!
