Xmas Gingerbread Cupcakes


I made an decision- my BF started low carb last year and it was really hard for me to bake all those nice „unhealthy“ recipes (most of them without trying). yeahh I’m pretty supportive 🙁 But here we go I’ll started searching for low carb & gluten free recipes..you are welcome to follow me on my low carb journey.I was pretty happy to find gluten free and low carb recipes… so i started cooking & baking.
I was pretty surprised how good it went and of course it’s easy to make.

So here’s my first recipe.
I started with a almond chocolate Cupcake (of course cupcake! Can’t live without) with a creamy vanilla frosting. Pretty easy pretty yummie! And a lot of low-carbs- wehehhehe
What you’ll need:



  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 200 gr Almonds (grinded)
  • 50gr xilyt
  • 4 tbsp warm water


  • 200ml cream cheese or curd
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • red food color
  • 3tblsp milk/ cream
  1. beat the egg whites with 1/3 of sugar until foamy. (preheat your oven to 175°C)
  2. use an extra bowl and mix the eggs yolks with 2/3 sugar  .
  3. now mix the almonds with the creamy egg yolk mixture.
  4. now fold your egg whites savely into the batter otherwise it will deflate.
  5. fill up the dough into your muffin cups and bake for 15-20min.
