Pumpkin Cupcakes with Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting

The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen is getting very creative with our Let's Do...Organic® Coconut Flour! "After multiple failed attempts to create a grain-free, nut-free, refined sugar-free cupcake recipe I finally got it! We couldn't decide whether or not to call these muffins or cupcakes.....so when frosted they are cupcakes and when plain they are muffins. I sweeten these little treats using pureed medjool dates. Combined with the coconut flour, they taste fairly sweet! I have found that different brands of coconut flour yield very different results. Most of my coconut flour creations needed to be composted (ok, I have much more experience using grain flours) until I began using a different brand of coconut flour. I have had best results using the Let's Do...Organic® brand of coconut flour." Grain-Free Coconut Flour Pumpkin Cupcakes with Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting Dry Ingredients:
  • ½ cup Let's Do...Organic® coconut flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 ¼ cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup soft medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 4 large organic eggs or egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 recipe Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting
  • freshly grated nutmeg for decoration
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add all of the wet ingredients to a high-powered lender, blend until smooth and creamy, pulsing if needed.
  • Scoop out wet ingredients with a rubber spatula and whisk into the dry ingredients until combined.
  • Scoop batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cup to the top. Gently smooth the top of each with your fingertips.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove cupcakes and cool on a wire rack. If you want to frost these, wait until they are completely cooled. Then top each cupcake with a little freshly grated nutmeg.
  • If you make the frosting recipe, pour it into a bowl after you blend it and place it in your freezer for 30 to 40 minutes (stirring every 10 minutes or so). This will cause it to solidify to a spreadable consistency.
