Gene’s Chocolate Cupcakes~sort of

Now that I am off grains, i had to come up with a creative idea for my cupcakes.  After much searching, i found these yummy gluten free chocolate cupcakes.  Thanks to elana’s pantry for the recipe.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
¼ cup grapeseed oil
½ cup agave nectar

  1. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda
  2. In a large bowl, blend together eggs, oil and agave
  3. Blend dry ingredients into wet thoroughly
  4. Line a cupcake tin with paper liners and scoop a scant 1/4 cup into each
  5. Bake at 375° for 20-22 minutes
  6. Cool and cover with vegan “buttercream” chocolate frosting
  7. Serve

It must be the new math, but i followed the recipe to a T and used a 1/4 cup measure and could only squeeze out five cupcakes.

Vegan Chocolate Frosting
1 cup dark chocolate 73%
½ cup grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
pinch celtic sea salt

  1. In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate and grapeseed oil
  2. Stir in agave, vanilla and salt
  3. Place frosting in freezer for 15 minutes to chill and thicken
  4. Remove from freezer and whip frosting with a hand blender until it is thick and fluffy
  5. Frost over cake, chocolate or vanilla cupcakes or between cookies

I could never get the frosting to ‘whip up’ so i just dipped the cupcakes into the delicious chocolatey goodness 😉  Enjoy!
