Sea Salt Chocoholic Cupfins

⁣*Cupfin: cupcake meets muffin

Honestly you guys, I have a hard time not eating all of these in two days when I make them! But it is a smaller batch and gluten-free and refined sugar-free...sooo, dig in! :)

This batch makes 10 cupfins, but you can double, or even triple it if you want more! The cupfins are moist, chocolaty, yet not too sweet (!!!), & the sea salt flakes make it all come together! ⁣


The two little ingredients that make it extra yummy is @hukitchen chocolate gems (unrefined sugar) and @maldonsalt flaky sea salt! ⁣
