IntroductionThis recipe is adapted from the one which appears in a recent issue of Clean Eating magazine.
I have made several changes to the original to lower the caloric content as well as sweeten the glaze slightly. This recipe is adapted from the one which appears in a recent issue of Clean Eating magazine.

1 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice (labeled as sucanat), divided
1 cup light sour cream
1/3 cup and 2 tsp. unsweetened plain, chocolate, or vanilla almond milk,, divided
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 whole egg and 2 egg whites
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. light agave nectar
1 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
*In another bowl, whisk together the 1/3 cup milk, sour cream, whole egg, and vanilla. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients to it, and mix well with a rubber spatula.
*In a clean, cold bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy, slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup sucanat, and beat until medium-stiff peaks are reached.
*In 3 additions, fold the egg whites quickly but assertively into the batter. Divide between 12 muffin cups and bake for 45 minutes.
*Once cupcakes are completely cool, prepare the glaze by melting the baking chocolate with agave and remaining 2 tsp. of milk over low heat. Spread a thin layer on each cake and enjoy!

Sooo good! They are very moist and chocolatey. I love that they aren't all dry. I did my own frosting instead of the melted chocolate on top so they would last in the frdge better. YUM! - 2/19/10

I'm so glad that you enjoyed them. Another great topping is a little bit of light cream cheese whipped with 1-2 tbsp. of raw honey and a dash of vanilla or almond extract.
