Cupcakes! The very best baked good out there. Especially, when they are chocolate. 😉

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Salt+ Baking powder
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Coconut oil
  • Milk
  • Maple syrup
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla

Flour: White or White Whole Wheat can both be used

Coconut oil: If desired, melted butter can be used as a substitute.

Milk: Regular dairy milk or almond milk are both ok to use.

No Maple Syrup on Hand? Go with honey instead.

Frosting: I have provided a link to the recipe card used in these photos. It contains no refined sugar and is really quick to make. Of course, feel free to use your favorite chocolate ( or any flavor) frosting for these.
