We are headed to a birthday party today at a Gymnastics place. I want my girls to get the whole experience so I made cupcakes just like the host is making (Vanilla cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting).
I used the Vanilla Cupcake recipe from Elana's Pantry (love this site!), subbing honey for agave nectar. I also searched for an alternative frosting that reduced the risk of cross-contamination. Cocoa powder or Cacao powder is generally safe for us, although not on the GAPS approved list. I thought I would share anyway in case any other families have a little chocolate now and then.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup cacao powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla
-Heat oil, butter and honey until soft.
-Put in blender or Cuisinart and then add cacao powder and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
-Place in freezer for an hour or so. I put mine in a bowl that I lined with parchment.
|This could also double as chocolate fudge!|
