You all know that I love chocolate right? I mean after all I have an entire category dedicated to all things chocolate. I hope will check that delicious category.

Well, I am going to assume that you will have no problem with me adding my keto chocolate sour cream cupcakes  to this growing collection.

Can a person have too many low carb keto chocolate recipes? Yup, I thought you would agree with me that, that could never be a problem.

Keto Chocolate Cupcakes

These chocolate cupcakes include sour cream, a little secret ingredient I learned to use years ago when wanting to make a baked good extra moist.  If you haven’t had this combination before you are in for a real treat.

The recipe also includes a bold cup of coffee for added depth of flavor. Something about coffee that truly enhances the flavor of chocolate. You can always make it a decaf if you are concerned about the caffeine.

Keto Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes

I decided to share my keto chocolate sour cream cupcake recipe in time for Resurrection Sunday (Easter). I couldn’t think of a better recipe to help celebrate the Christian Faith with.

Rich keto chocolate sour cream cupcakes

These low carb chocolate sour cream cupcakes are the perfect healthy treat to enjoy during this most Holy season.

Whether it is called Easter or Resurrection Day is not as important to this girl as the event and purpose of the resurrection.

Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection are God’s provision for the perfect and final sacrifice for man’s sins. It’s the only payment God accepts for the remission of our sins.

Accepting God’s Provision

I was twelve years old when I made the decision to accept Christ as my Savior, that was many moons ago. However, it was such a powerful defining moment in my life, that I can recall with great detail everything about that day.

In fact, I can even tell you exactly what I was wearing, and who prayed with me. Honestly, this really surprises me since most days I can’t remember what I wore a week ago.

Without a doubt, trusting Jesus as my savior was the best decision I ever made and it marked me for life.

That day was the beginning of a new and glorious life for me. It started me on a lifelong journey of transformation that radically changed my life.

The Christian road has not always been an easy one for me. My faith has had many opportunities to be tested.

BUT, no matter how challenging life sometimes gets, I can’t imagine my life without Him. I always say better to go through this with His help, than to try my own best efforts without him.

Easter Or Resurrection

Can I tell you that it really does not matter to me if you call the day that we commemorate the sacrifice that Christ made on the cross Easter or Resurrection Sunday?

I know that may not sit well with some people, but frankly I am not about to stop a child from collecting Easter eggs in the same way, I would never put a blockade on Santa Claus during Christmas.

After all, it’s up to us as adults to teach the children the true meaning of these Christian holidays. Why not let them get excited about the holidays and let that enthusiasm open the door for meaningful conversations when they are ready.

Why So Much Sugar During The Holidays?

What I think most will agree with is that (Easter) Resurrection Sunday, offers no shortage of sweets.

Whether it’s the vast array of jelly beans, chocolate covered eggs or solid chocolate crosses, sugar-laden foods seem to be in abundance.

I mean, even the traditional holiday ham is covered in drippy, sugary syrup.

This year I challenge you to enjoy the festivities but also off a healthier option like these keto chocolate sour cream cupcakes.

Lastly, I find no harm if you choose to participate in an Easter egg hunt with the little ones for the sake of tradition. I won’t even fault you for sneaking a treat from their basket

Holiday traditions are made for lasting memories. But why stop there? Instead, may I also encourage you to make every effort to also take those same little ones to church on Easter Sunday?

Why not allow a Sunday School teacher to pour into their lives and share the true meaning behind this holiday?

If you are in the Miami, Florida area and are in need of a place to worship Easter Sunday, I invite you to Word of Faith Global Ministries for a time of great celebration.

I sure hope you will give this recipe a try. Once you do, make sure you remember to tag us on Instagram and Facebook. It’s what keeps this girl encouraged to keep sharing and perfecting her recipes.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to talk about Christ and to share your love for Him here. I too am a Christian and remember the day I accepted Christ as my savior at the age of 10. Today I was looking for a keto type desert, not for any particular holiday, just to have something nice to have without sugar and found your recipe. Finding your words about Christ was such a welcomed surprise.
    • Hi Susan, so thrilled you found my blog. Sharing my recipes will always also open my heart to sharing my faith. It means so much to me that you would take the time to to stop by to encourage me. 😘💞
  2. Is this for mini cupcakes or normal ones?
  3. Hello question for ya, I am trying to put this into my husbands fitness pal for his Keto Diet and I keep getting 15 carbs per cupcake instead of the 2 that you have listed ? Please help He loved them and now won’t eat them Due to the high carb content.
    • Hi Madison, that’s because you’re including the carbs from Swerve but Swerve is the name brand of Erythritol But unlike other sugar alcohols it has a 0 % impact on blood sugar. (unlike Xylitol and Malitol) It is completely safe to eat on a keto diet and you do not need to count the carbs in your Net carb count for the day. Erythritol is only 0.2 Calories per gram. It is listed as 25 grams of carbs by difference. In the US at least, anything that is not protein or fat when tested is automatically listed as a carb by difference. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is 90% processed in the small intestine. The human body cannot derive energy from erythritol (hence the low calorie count), and it has 0 glycemic impact and load (no insulin response).
  4. Thank you so much for the timely and information packed response. He will be pleased!
  5. These cupcakes look delicious. Could you make these as brownies and bake in a squre non-stick pan?
  6. Hello!! I would like to make these for my family but was wondering if I could leave the coffee out?
  7. I baked these and they are soooo delicious. The only problem I have is that the consistency is very moist but they fall apart when I try to eat one. I have to use a spoon. What did I do wrong?
    • Hmmmm that’s odd. Perhaps they needed to be baked a little longer. You can try popping them in say a 300 degree oven for 15 more minutes to see if this helps. Unfortunately, not all ovens heat the same.
  8. Can I use dark cacao powder in stead of melted chocolate. Should I add more of another ingredient to compensate for the dry vs moist chocolate? Mic
    • Hi Mic, I have not made that substitution and I am not certain it would work. To do so would change the recipe completely. You might want to try my this chocolate pound cake instead https://www.fittoservegroup.com/2018/08/11/keto-cream-cheese-chocolate-pound-cake/ It uses cocoa powder and only 2 ounces of baking chocolate fro the batter. You should still get good results by taking those two ounces off. Let me know if it works out.
  9. The serving saids 24 is the correct or is it 12 serves? The macros stated is for 24 mini’s?
