These Low Calorie Chocolate Cupcakes are just 108 calories (including the frosting!) and they are also low carb and low sugar.
I gave you the option to add sprinkles, though they are not in the nutrition as many people won't want to use them.
Special Tip: Make sure to spray the insides of the muffin liners with olive oil as the cupcakes are low in fat. Without doing this they will stick to the liners.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, add muffin liners to 12 muffin cups and lightly spray the insides with olive oil.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix and set aside.
  • In a standing mixer, or large bowl with handheld mixer, combine the apple sauce, sugar, and oil. Whisk together.
  • While whisking on low speed, add in the eggs one at a time.
  • Add the vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients slowly, until just combined.
  • Fill the cupcake liners 3/4 full, and bake for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Move the cupcakes to a cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • Smear or pipe Low Calorie Chocolate Frosting on the tops of the cupcakes, and top with sprinkles (if using).
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Do not frost the cupcakes until they are completely cooled. Or the frosting will melt and become a big mess.
