Gluten Free Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes are rich and decadent. So easy to make, its ridiculous! Just combine all six ingredients in the food processor and pulse it a few times. Bake them, frost them with chocolate ganache and that’s it! Serve these cupcakes with a good strong cup of coffee and you’ve got the perfect dessert.
I substitute good sugar free chocolate chips to keep them on the lower glycemic side. They’re so rich that they seem like a guilty pleasure, but in reality, they’re low in sugar and grain free.
These Cupcakes are crowd pleasers!
We all love these Gluten Free Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes! I make extra and store them in the freezer so Joe can eat them whenever he likes or if guests pop over on short notice. When Louie Anderson stops by, we serve him one of these cupcakes with a decaf cappuccino. We were talking about these cupcakes the other day and Louie told me he didn’t care for hazelnuts. I thought isn’t that funny because he loves these cupcakes. (That’s how good they are!)
If you like Nutella, you’ll love these Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes
I love chocolate and hazelnuts. These remind me of Nutella! The first time I had Nutella was when my Oma (my Dutch Grandma) brought it back from Holland. Grandpa and Oma went to Holland every year to visit with her family and always brought back treats for us (wooden shoes, Nutella, chocolate sprinkles and more). Nutella wasn’t available in the United States yet. When we visited Grandpa and Oma in the summer, we would eat Nutella on a slice of warm toast for breakfast. My mother wasn’t thrilled that we were eating a sugary breakfast, but Oma convinced her that we were on vacation so it was ok!
After making these Gluten Free Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes one time and you’ll be addicted! Then you’ll be making double batches like I do!
