Vegan Keto Cupcakes

Is a vegan keto diet manageable?

I, myself, have no idea. I do have a few friends who are vegans, though. They mostly munch on carby veggies, sugary sugar alternatives, and meals made from legumes. They cook and bake delicious stuff that I usually have to keep away from. I do, occasionally, try their homemade paleo treat so that I can tell they are fine bakers.

When keto or low-carb lifestyle gets mentioned to these vegan folks, they tend to reject the idea saying it’s only about meat, eggs, and animal fat. I can understand how hard it would be for them to keep away from legumes (usually their protein source). On the other hand, I think a kind of vegan low-carb lifestyle could be manageable. I am not the only one thinking about this. These guys from BreakNutrition also debate about the possibility of vegan ketogenic diet optimistically.

A carnivorous sweet-tooth should love this one as well

Vegan, vegetarian, or omnivorous, these cupcakes are awesome if you fancy a low-carb high-fat dessert. Avocados are by far one of the most useful plants out there to use in a recipe like this one. The recipe below is missing the topping, but you can learn how to make it here. An avocado mousse that is delicious by itself comes as a fresh and nice counterbalance to the chocolate cupcake base.

You will notice I put coffee into the cake mixture. I like the boost it gives me (as well as the boost from matcha green tea contained in the avocado mousse), but you can use decaf coffee if you’re going to munch on these in the evenings.

Baking a single batch of this instead of a dozen of cupcakes is also an option. What I’ve done is distribute the freshly baked and still warm brownie batter into small transparent cups and top those with the avocado mousse, so the little desserts resembled cacti. A fun idea for the parties to which vegans are invited!

    Can almond flour be used instead of coconut flour? I’ve made them twice with coconut flour and they come out kind of dry what might I be doing wrong?

    It it correct that baking soda is listed (rather than baking powder)? I thought it might be a typo.

  3. There’s actually plenty of us out here- vegan LCHF/vegan keto- we exist! Check reddit @ r/veganketo and Facebook @ Vegan Keto Made Simple, for some awesome resources. For me, keto has helped balance out microbiome issues and high candida- I’ve never done well with grain, and I feel amazing with all the rest cut out. I’ve seen people with inflammatory issues, PCOS, diabetes, and epilepsy who were already vegan or wanted to try a more plant based approach try it out. Everyone is different, listen to what you need!

  4. Not all vegans are like your friends. I know plenty that are health conscious. Maybe you should think about researching whole foods plant based. HCLF is good for you! LCHF is bad for you! Watch some documentaries like Forks Over Knives, What the Health for starters. Even though newbie is in my email; I’m not.
