These Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes are lighter since I’ve replaced some of the fat in the batter with low fat greet yogurt. The cocoa in the recipe provides healthy antioxidants without the extra fat to keep you from feeling too guilty. When indulging in desserts it’s best to keep the portions small. Instead of eating a whole piece of cake, homemade cupcakes are a better sized alternative. They’re also much smaller than the cupcakes you’d get from the bakery so you won’t be overdoing it. But once you see how good these are you’ll have to muster all of your willpower to stop at just one.

You deserve more? viewers!!
Thanks for the feedback. That’s? awesome. Glad you like them.
Great Job, these were so? easy and sooooooooooo good!
They came out almost like a basic devils food cake. My daughter? prefers them with Betty Crocker chocolate frosting.
Looks like another good one 🙂 I will? def be making these this week.
Thanks Sandy, You can never go? wrong with a chocolate cupcake.
i dont know h I missed this one! They look delicious and I love? chocolate and coconut togeher! I will definitely try this ASAP!
Thanks Very much! Very useful, I have a good? gf self raising mix, will send photos when I get to trial it!
They look? great , my only problem is I cant just eat one….!!!
Hi, I don’t think you have it in australia. Gf bisquick is a baking mix usually used for pancakes. If you cant get it you can sub gf all purpose flour blend and leavening agents and salt in the amounts I mention for people not following gf diet. ? But if you do use the gf all purpose flour blend, you need to make sure it contains xanthan gum to hold the cupcakes together. The best comparison would be gf self rising flour with xanthan gum. Hope this helps.
Hey these look great, not sure what bisquick is,? maybe we don’t have it in Australia, can you describe it?
Thanks Angie. ?
well darn it if you don’t know the way to my heart!! DELICIOUS!!!!!!?
Thank You I appreciate it.?
Oh I see, I thought you were allergic to dairy in general but it’s just yogurt that doesn’t agree with you. If you can eat butter, you could just use that if you want. But it has to be melted and cooled before adding it. Since I produced this video for Favediets I had to keep it lighter. The yogurt saves? a lot of calories. Applesauce would do the same thing without changing the flavor. Mashed bananas would work too but they would change the flavor of the cupcakes.
Thanks for? your kind words. 🙂
Hahaha, These cupcakes are dangerous to keep around. You definitely gotta keep the weight down with MS. Congrats on 50 lbs? gone, that’s awesome.
These look amazing – both with the coconut and the jimmies – yum! And I love the tip about putting the water in the unused portion of the pan -? great video 🙂
You need to not post these tempting things! I just freakin’ lost 50 lbs and I need to maintain it for my mobility? issues with MS! Oh my goodness, these look absolutely AMAZBALLS!
Hi Katie, The? cupcake is very basic. You can always skip the coconut or even use some yummy chocolate icing which is what I think my daughter would have liked.
I dont really like Coconut but this does look good :)?
Thanks? Anna they were good. They disappeared quickly.
