Adventures in Cooking: Babycakes Cupcakes

It's no surprise that Ashley and I love cupcakes...So when my best friend Emily gave me this cupcake book a few years ago we were elated! This is a book from a bakery here in NYC. All the recipes are vegan, gluten free, and mostly sugar free. Healthy cupcakes? Complete heaven! Here I am sharing a recipe for vanilla cupcakes that are absolutely delish!

2 cups Garbanzo-Fava Bean Flour
1 cup potato starch
1/2 cup arrowroot
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons of salt
2/3 cup of coconut oil
1 1/3 cups of agave nectar
3/4 Applesauce
3 tablespoons Vanilla Extract
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 cup of hot water

Whisk together the dry ingredients...Then add all of the rest! That simple!

Pour 1/3 cup batter into each prepared cup
Bake at 325 for 22 minutes!

 So delicious!

Until Next Time!
