Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce room temp or warmed a little if chilled
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree canned
  • 1 cup oat flour instructions below on how to make
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp apple cide vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 and line or grease your cupcake pan.
  • Make Oat Flour: Take gluten free rolled oats and pulse in your blender until turned into a powder form: AKA Oat Flour. Yes, it's that easy and quick.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix coconut oil and apple sauce together well. Then add honey and mix well.
  • Then add the eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla. Mix until all are combined.
  • In a small bowl mix the almond milk and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: oat flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, baking powder.
  • Then slowly mix your dry ingredients into your wet.
  • And then fold in your almond milk mixture until well incorporated.
  • Lastly, throw in your chocolate chips and gently fold into mixture.
  • Fill your cupcake liners about 2/3 of the way. Cook at 350 for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Then remove from oven, but let sit in the pan for about 5-7 minutes. Remove to a baking rack and let cool.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. They won't last that long though. ;)
