  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Recipe Notes:

For this recipe, we alter our cream cheese frosting recipe by adding melted ChocZero white chocolate chips.  Use the code ‘AFullLiving’ for 10% off your ChocZero order.

Sweeteners: We advise sweetening this to taste! There are a lot of sweeteners we know and love, so use your favorite. For this recipe, we used Lakanto Classic. We think the best baked goods often blend sweeteners. Since Lakanto is sweetened with monk fruit and erythritol, we don’t add it to our nutritional facts, as these natural sweeteners are not known to spike blood sugar. If you are using other sweeteners, please keep this in mind. We are definitely not experts and everyone is a little different. If you are looking to use regular sugar, we think Lakanto has the closest 1:1 substitute so you should be able to make the swap just fine.

We would like to say that if you’re making the frosting and coulis ahead of time, be sure to let them sit out on the counter for about an hour before frosting so that everything can come to room temperature. Sweeteners like Lakanto and Swerve can crystalize in the fridge.

Here’s How You Make Sugar Free Vampire Bite Cupcakes:​


For the purpose of the photo, we prepared the raspberry components and frosting ahead of time, but when it comes to actually making these cupcakes, we’d recommend starting with the cupcakes first so they have time to cool before frosting them. We would suggest removing your butter and cream cheese (for the cream cheese frosting) from the fridge to come to room temperature while you are preparing the cupcakes.

For the cupcakes, preheat your oven to 350F. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners, and spray them with some non-stick spray, set aside.

In a large bowl, add your almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, salt, baking powder and whisk together.

Add your melted butter, then add your eggs (one at a time) to the batter. Add in your vanilla extract. Cream together with a handmixer.

Spoon the batter into your muffin tin, filling each one about 3/4 of the way full, these won’t rise much. Bake at 350F for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool for about an hour before frosting.

Now, prepare your cream cheese frosting according to this recipe. We love this recipe because it makes for a perfect base to add other flavor mix-ins!

Once you’ve made your cream cheese frosting, melt your white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with 2 tbsp of butter. Stop the microwave every 15 seconds to mix everything together so the chips don’t burn. You want the white chocolate to be nice and melted.

Now, add your melted white chocolate to the frosting and cream together with your handmixer. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until it’s time to frost the cupcakes later.

Now, for the raspberry jam and coulis. In a small saucepan, simply combine raspberries with water and sweetener. You’ll want to cook over low heat until the raspberries soften, separate and release all of their liquid.

Cook until desired jam consistency is reached. We ended up utilizing both the jam and the coulis for this recipe. We didn’t want to waste anything. We simply took a metal strainer and separate the juice from the seeds and more “jammy” parts. We used the jammy parts to fill the cupcakes, and the coulis liquid for the “blood” with our vampire bites!
Now, we assemble. Once cupcakes have cooled, create a medium sized hole in the center to fill the cupcakes with raspberry jam.
Now, add your cream cheese frosting to a piping bag and frost the cupcakes. Hopefully your decorating skills are better than mine! Even if they aren’t they will still taste good. 🙂
Now, using a chopstick, gently create two holes side by side through the frosting that look like bites! Using a dropper or syringe, put enough raspberry coulis in there to create a dripping blood effect.
Enjoy!! These will keep in the fridge for about 5 days, but we recommend making these the day of your party for the best results. Have a spooky Halloween everyone!
