celebration birthday cupcakes

a birthday calls for a celebration and for my little man, that means chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! so, i tweaked my cocoa waffle recipe and came up with this!


for approx. 15 cupcakes, you will need:

5 pastured eggs
1/4 c melted coconut oil
1 T pure vanilla
1 3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
 4 heaping T cocoa powder
2/3 cup full fat coconut milk (canned)
1/2 cup + 2 T coconut flour
1/2 cup sunflower seed flour
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup organic sugar (yep, not really paleo, but it's his BIRTHDAY)
1 small ripe banana

mix everything in blender or food processor until smooth. divide evenly into lined muffin pans, about 1/4 cup per muffin...i got 15.

for frosting you will need:

15 oz can coconut milk
16 oz dairy free chocolate chips

heat coconut milk until steaming. place chips in medium bowl and pour steaming milk over them and let stand 5 min. stir until glossy and smooth. let cool 15 minutes and whip with hand mixer or stand mixer until thick. spread on cupcakes :-)

(the sprinkles are most decidedly NOT paleo...and I don't care)
