Dark Chocolate Protein Cupcakes

A lot of people ask me if the collagen I use in recipes is necessary. Typically the answer is – it helps, but is not vital. For this recipe, it’s kind of the whole point.

I feel like I haven’t been able to get enough collagen into my day lately. I love collagen for great skin, hair, nails and an impeccable immune system. Check out this blog to learn even more.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I did not use anything to sweeten these cupcakes beyond dark chocolate. If you are used to sweetness in your diet, you may need to add liquid stevia or Swerve to this recipe. I prefer my cupcakes non-sweetened, but if you still use artificial sweeteners consistently, these cupcakes may be too bitter for you.
