Prep Time: 20 min.
Yields: 12 Cupcakes

Cupcake Ingredients:

- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1/4 melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp white or cider vinegar
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp Boku Coco Love
- 3/4 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
- 1/2 cup Boku Cacao Nibs
- 1/2 tsp
- 1/2 tsp baking soda

Frosting Ingredients:

- 1 can full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream
-1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- sweetener of choice to taste (Use stevia or powdered sugar for thickest results)

Direction:

1) Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cupcake pan with liners.

2) In a large bowl, whisk first 5 ingredients. Let sit at least 10 minutes, and sift all remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl while you wait. Pour wet into dry, stir just until evenly mixed.

3) Pour batter into liners, only fill up 2/3 of the way at most. Bake 20 minutes on the center rack. Let cool.

4) Open your coconut milk, and if it’s not already super-thick, leave the can (or transfer to a bowl) uncovered in the fridge overnight.

5) Once thick, transfer only the creamy part to a bowl, leaving the watery part out. Whip in your cocoa, vanilla, and sweetener till well combined. Top cooled cupcakes. ENJOY!
