Cupcakes that are grain-free and egg-free, yay! Serve these cupcakes for birthdays or holidays. They are best served warm, with warm ganache. You can also serve them with Whipped Coconut Cream and fresh berries for a festive treat! I used Dagoba organic cocoa powder which is gluten-free, but any type of organic, gluten-free cocoa powder or raw cacao powder will work. I also use full-fat organic canned coconut milk for both the frosting and cupcakes.
