Ingredients for Cupcake
 ¾ cup almond flour
 ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
 2 tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp fine sea salt
 ¾ cup maple syrup
 4 eggs
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 2 tbsp coconut oil
Ingredients for Filling
 1 cup Greek yogurt (nondairy coconut yogurt works as well)
 2 tsp maple syrup
 ½ tsp vanilla extract
 Optional: mini dark chocolate chips for decorating

1

Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin tin with 12 silicone liners.

2

In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt).

3

In a small bowl, combine all the wet ingredients (maple syrup, eggs, vanilla, and coconut oil).

4

Pour the wet into dry ingredients and stir to combine.

5

Pour batter into muffin liners and bake for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.

6

In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients for our frosting. Taste and alter measurements to your liking.

7

Once the cupcakes are cooled, they're ready to be filled with our yogurt frosting. There are multiple ways to do this:

8

A. Insert a decorating tip into a piping bag, and position the tip into the top of the cupcake to fill.

9

B. Insert a paring knife into the top of the cupcake at an angle and cut out a cone shape. Fill the hole with frosting. (This is the method we use)

10

C. Using a apple corer to create a hole to fill with frosting.

11

Decorate the frosting with chocolate chips and enjoy!
