Chocolate Cupcakes

Maple Vanilla Cashew Frosting


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 6-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  • In a food processor, combine coconut flour, cocoa powder, tapioca starch, baking soda, and sea salt. Pulse until well combined.
  • Add the rest of the wet ingredients and pulse together until well mixed, scraping down the side if necessary.
  • Divide the batter evenly into each cupcake liner, filling it up no more than 2/3 of the way up.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Move to a cooling rack and cool completely before icing.
  • While the cupcakes are baking, make the Maple Vanilla Cashew Frosting. Drain the soaked cashews and place in a high-powered blender.
  • Add the the rest of the ingredients in the blender, and blend together until smooth and creamy.
  • Chill for 15 minutes before icing the cupcakes.
  • If using, garnish with shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
  • Store the cupcakes in the refrigerator before serving.
