If you love chocolate as much as I do (and even if you don't), I am positive you will adore these cupcakes!

Makes 8 cupcakes.

¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup cacao powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
4 large eggs
¼ cup coconut oil
⅓ cup honey

For the Frosting:

¼ cup coconut oil
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate chips


For the Cupcakes:

1. Pulse together dry ingredients in a food processor.
2. Pulse in wet ingredients.
3. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and scoop ¼ cup into each.
4. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes.
5. Cool for at least 30 minutes before frosting.

For the Frosting:

1. In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt the chocolate and coconut oil.
2. Stir in the vanilla extract.
3. Place the frosting in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to thicken.
4. Remove it from the refrigerator and whip the frosting with a hand blender or in a stand mixer until thick and fluffy.
