Chocolate and peanut butter, need I say more?!

Chocolate and peanut butter is my absolute FAVORITE combo when it comes to sweets,  and today I’m sharing a recipe that gives you an updated, healthy twist on this classic combination!

These gluten-free, dairy-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes not only deliver mouth-watering flavor, but they also bring along a boost of nutritional superheroes, like powerful antioxidant vitamin E, bone-building magnesium, muscle-friendly potassium, and immunity-boosting vitamin B6.

And let’s not forget a strong dose of healthy fats!

Clean eating 100% of the time is an impossible and unnecessary goal. And when we think or talk about eating certain foods as “cheating,” we’re unnecessarily shouldering negative and/or shameful energy we can come to associate with the act of eating.

Stressing about what you ate/drank at a friends’ birthday party is worse for you than the food itself!

So go ahead, whip up a batch of these cupcakes, enjoy every bite, and let me know how long they last in your house!
