Paleo Tablea Cupcakes

The first and only time I made this was during the Paleo Challenge last March. I'd adapted this chocolate cupcake recipe from Elana's Pantry, and while I was happy with its taste, I wasn't thrilled about the centers that had sunk. Also, it's not that easy to find 100% pure tablea. Most of the ones I see in supermarkets either have sugar and milk or whey.

But since then, I'd found several other sources of tablea -- there's the Kablon brand, and there are also several sellers on -- and now I feel confident enough to share the recipe.

Tablea cupcakes and Coconut banana muffins

Paleo Tablea Cupcakes
(makes 18)

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 tablets pure tablea, chopped
6 eggs
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup coconut nectar
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cupcake pans with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a double boiler and mix in chopped tablea, whisking until the tablea is melted and the mixture is smooth. Transfer this to a medium mixing bowl and let cool for around 5 minutes.
  4. When the chocolate mixture is just a tad warm, add the cocoa and mix well. Then, add the coconut sugar and coconut nectar.
  5. To the chocolate mixture, add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  6. Add the coconut flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and blend well.
  7. Scoop a scant 1/4 cup into each cup. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
This goes extremely well with Fog City Creamery's paleo coconut vanilla ice cream.
