I love making these guilt-free Martha Stewarts Devils Food Cupcakes.  I have adjusted the recipes a bit so they are made with nutritious ingredients and have much less sugar than what a regular recipe would call for.   I like making them into small cupcake sizes (portion control) and I actually allow my kids to eat these for breakfast since they're made out of oat, whole wheat and graham flour as opposed to the white flour they call for in the recipe.  I also like to serve them at birthday parties replacing birthday cake, it's so much easier to serve.  The birthday cupcake displays can be so versatile, depending on what your child is into that year.  Read on to find out what I'm talking about.
