Carob Cupcakes


1 2/3 c Flour
1/2 c Carob powder
1/2 ts Baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp stevia
1/2 cup soft butter (or 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup carob chips (unsweetened)
1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thoroughly mix first six ingredients in separate bowl. Mix remaining ingredients. Add dry ingredients to moist and mix well. Pour into greased and floured cupcake tins. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I made this recipe with light spelt flour and had good results. The cupcakes were a little heavier, but still delicious.

If you are using white powdered stevia extract you may need to cut back on the amount to avoid having cupcakes that are too sweet. With white powdered stevia, 1 teaspoon equals approximately 1 cup of granulated sugar, so let that guide you in your baking.
