It’s taken me some rough recipes to get to the place when I can deliver the best tasting paleo cupcakes to date!

I’m not 100% paleo, because I believe in moderation and eating beans, but I love baking paleo!

Gluten, dairy and sugar free baking became a passion of mine about six months ago after trying the Whole 30 cleanse.

I love dessert, so it’s important to me that anything I make be deliciously satisfying to someone that also eats Tollhouse cookie dough and zebra cakes.

I think these cupcakes fit the ticket!

 

German Chocolate Cupcakes

Cake:

Makes 10-12 cupcakes:

1 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 Tbsp tapioca flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 Tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.

Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

Combine all dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until mixed.

Add wet ingredients and blend until completely smooth and mixed together.

Distribute batter evenly amongst the cupcake liners – about 2/3 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes.

Let cool completely before frosting.

 

Frosting:

½ cup pecans (preferably raw)

1 cup shredded Unsweetened Coconut

8 medjool dates (pitted)

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract
