  • Ingredients for cupcakes:
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix I prefer the organic mixes like Arrowhead mills
  • 1 15 oz can organic pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • For frosting:
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 8 packets stevia or a little more to taste (I love the Whole Earth sweetener)
  • 2 tbsp instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 small tub light cool whip or truwhip for a healthier option


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Mix all cupcake ingredients together.
  • Batter will be thick.
  • Pour into paper lined cupcake tins sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Put cottage cheese, stevia and cocoa powder into a food processor or Vitamix.
  • Blend ingredients until smooth and creamy for 2-3 minutes (you must do it this long to achieve a smooth and creamy texture).
  • Stir in pudding mix until blended and fold in cool whip.
  • Pipe or spread onto cooled cupcakes and serve.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
