Keto chocolate cupcake frosting ideas

For the chocolate cupcakes in the pictures, I used this Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.

Feel free to ice the cupcakes however you wish – some easy ideas include chocolate or vanilla buttercream or cream cheese frosting, whipped cream, or homemade Coconut Whipped Cream.

Or you can skip the frosting entirely, and instead top your cupcakes with sliced strawberries, almond butter, or this Keto Ice Cream.

How to make keto cupcakes

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a mini muffin tin or regular muffin tin, and set aside. Stir all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, then stir in wet to form a batter.

Scoop into the prepared muffin tins, going about 2/3 of the way up. Then bake on the oven’s center rack for ten minutes (or fifteen minutes if making large cupcakes).

Let cool completely, as they firm up while cooling. Go around the sides of each tin with a knife, then pop the cupcakes out. Frost if desired.

Leftovers can be covered and stored out on the counter for a day, or refrigerate three to four days. They can also be frozen for up to two months.

How to make keto cupcakes (vegan, dairy free)

For vanilla keto cupcakes: use the following recipe for Keto Muffins, and simply increase the erythritol or powdered sugar to 3 tbsp. Frost the cupcakes with your favorite homemade or store-bought frosting.

Vegan keto cupcake recipe: The cupcakes work with flax eggs. Or stir together 2 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill egg replacer with 6 tbsp water, and use in place of 2 eggs. Other commercial egg replacers that we haven’t yet tried here may also work. If you experiment and find a good one, be sure to report back.

Calories 44kcal


  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup fine almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp powdered erythritol or powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 2 large eggs, including the vegan options listed earlier in the post or 1 flax egg


  • I like to make mini cupcakes because they have a lighter texture, but regular cupcakes also work! Feel free to double the recipe if desired. To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a regular or mini muffin tin. Stir dry ingredients well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Fill tins about 2/3 of the way up. Bake 10 minutes for mini or 15 for regular size. Take out and let cool completely, because they firm up as they cool. Carefully go around the sides with a knife and pop out. If you can wait, they are even sweeter the next day! I listed a few frosting ideas above in the post, or you can use your favorite.
