Cupcakes can be part of the diet

Cupcakes can be part of the diet

At the tables, shop window cases, clothes or keychains, cupcakes are everywhere. And the mini-cakes of American origin are not a preference of the children. Adults also love this delicacy. Unlike the muffins, already popular in big city cafes, they have a softer batter and are filled with jellies and creams - in addition to the toppings, which are often a show of creativity and taste.

In general, the dumplings are loaded with calories and are not indicated for those who are dieting. But, like almost everything in the food, there are rather light options of cupcakes, with less fats, calories, and even more fiber.


Butter is an ingredient almost always present in cupcakes, so they're cute. However, a good tip is to use light butter and no salt, which already cuts in half the calories and fat of that ingredient. Whole milk can also be replaced by the skim version which often has 0g of fat.

The filling

Chocolate is released, if only half bitter, which in addition to being less greasy, have antioxidants that are friendly to heart and brain health. Fruit jellies may be a lean option when they carry dietary sugar, which is also true for creams. "The most interesting jellies would be those of red fruits because of the high content of anthocyanins (antioxidants) and preferably without sugar", explains nutritionist Carina Tafas.

You can also bet on nuts, plums and raisins, which have good nutrients. "The use of oilseeds like seeds, nuts and peanuts decreases the amount of fat needed in the recipe," says chef Cristina Chaim. "Bitter chocolate is also an excellent source of flavonoids (antioxidants), which help cardiovascular health," says Carina.
