Chocolate Coconut Flour Cupcakes

Last week was my son’s birthday and he was 20.  I cannot believe how time has flown by.  I decided to make him his favourite chocolate cupcakes and even made them grain free.  I found this recipe on "Basic Ingredients" blog.  I have tweeked them a bit.  They are quite possibly the most delicious cupcake.  I sure hope Jess thought so!  God has blessed us with 4 wonderful children and Jess is second oldest and our only January birthday.  

You could easily carry this cupcake into February and share them on Valentines day.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Coconut Flour Cupcakes

½ cup coconut flour
½ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 eggs plus 9 Tbsp of liquid egg white
½ cup coconut oil or melted butter (I used ¼ cup butter
and ¼ cup coconut oil)
1 cup of honey

*Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl and then add eggs, egg whites, coconut oil or butter and honey.  Mix well and spoon into cupcake pan (I used cupcake liners) 
Bake 350 14 to 16 minutes or until done.  Makes 9 cupcakes. 

*When you whisk your dry ingredients it puts air into them and helps to make your baking lighter. 

My icing recipe:
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp coconut milk
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Melt in microwave and stir in enough icing sugar until desired consistency.  1/2 cup would make a nice glaze and 1 cup would be a stiffer icing.

Frost cupcakes with my icing recipe or use your choice of cream cheese icing, chocolate mousse, or serve cupcakes warm with a delicious ice cream.  Enjoy!
