Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes (Flourless & Vegan)

Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

Friends, I love the combination of chocolate and coconut, who doesn’t?! It was my job to make cupcakes for my nephew’s birthday and I wanted a crowd pleaser. I knew the cupcakes had to be chocolate (everyone loves chocolate) but wanted to add some coconut flavour. I adapted my Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes with Cocoa Powder to make these chocolate coconut cupcakes. The result? Amazing! Make sure to use my Coconut Milk Whipped Cream Frosting and add some sprinkled coconut on top. Not only is this recipe super delicious but it’s guilt-free! It’s flourless and sweetened with maple syrup (and vegan)! It doesn’t get healthier than this folks. πŸ˜›
