Chocolate Cupcakes - GF
After being MIA for awhile, I am now back!
Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes
1 TB butter or coconut oil
1/4 C cocoa powder
1 TB coconut milk
3/4 C agave (I used 1/2 agave & 1/2 coconut sugar crystals)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 C sifted coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
In a saucepan on low heat, blend together butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and let cool. In a bowl, mix together coconut milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Stir in cocoa mixture. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps. Pour batter into greased muffin cups or muffin papers. Bake at 375 degrees F for 16-18 minutes. Let cool and top with frosting. Makes 6 cupcakes.
2 oz of cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C agave nectar
Cream all ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to use.
