Grain-Free Pumpkin Cupcakes
These moist and spicy grain-free cupcakes are made with coconut flour and sweetened only with medjool dates. You’ll need a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix to make these. I use soft medjool dates that are not soaked first so a regular blender just wouldn’t be able to puree them. Use fresh, homemade pumpkin puree or canned in this recipe. You can also use any type of winter squash puree if sugar pie pumpkins are unavailable. I like to bake and puree a lot of pumpkins in autumn and then freeze the puree in 2-cup containers to use throughout the year. Top with dairy-free Sweet Potato Buttercream Frosting. For a white frosting, be sure to use white-fleshed sweet potatoes like I did in these photos.
