      I am rating 4 stars because I changed a bit. I used cream of tartar beaten with the egg whites and baking soda with the flour. I did not spray the pan. They stuck a bit but came out ok. I just mixed the cocoa with the flour and folded it all in together. They were very tasty and I will be making them for my boy's 3rd birthday. Thanks for helping me stick to the diet!

      Quite tasty. I used ww pastry flour and regular unsweetened cocoa. And I doubled the recipe. Sure glad I did...they went very fast. Mine didn't fall. We topped them with a light vanilla frosting. It did increase the calories a bit but still each treat ended up being under 100 calories! Will make again!

      These cupcakes are great, especially for the low calories per serving (about 50 cals - I used a really great resource called Recipe Analyzer at http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php)!! I also used unsweetened cocoa powder and found that ey tasted sweet enough even when eaten plain. I didn't have baking powder, so I googled "baking powder substitute" and found one that involved baking soda and cream of tartar. I also didn't use the blender to blend in the rest of the ingredients beyond the first step after I formed the stiff egg white peaks the first time, but they turned out great anyway. I couldn't believe how light and fluffy they were, nor that a recipe with such simple ingredients came out at such a low cal count! The cupcakes did deflate a little bit as the other reviewers mentioned, but not very much. Also, I microwaved half of the batter in the plastic container that I used to mix the ingredients - it came out great that way, too! It actually resulted in a mini-cake with easier cleanup. I'll definitely be making these again and again.
