Valentine’s Day Treat

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and these chocolate cupcakes with strawberry filling and icing are a great treat for your loved ones! This recipe is gluten free and can easily be dairy free with the substitution of lactose free yogurt, instead of Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt adds extra an 17-20 g of protein to the cupcake!
