  • ¾ Cup Coconut Flour

#COOKWITHNUCO Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Blend the dates and water on high until smooth.
  3. Add the rest of the cupcake ingredients. Blend/process to form a thick batter.
  4. Divide between 6-8 muffin cups lined with paper liners or lightly oiled.
  5. Bake for 25 mins at 350F.
  6. Remove from the oven. Cool completely before frosting.
  7. In a food processor (works better than a blender for this), combine the mashed purple sweet potato and agave syrup. Process while slowly adding the milk until thick and smooth. This may take a while to get it really smooth. You can add a little coconut flour to help make it thicker. 
  8. Spread a thick layer of frosting on each cupcake. Dab with your knife or spoon to create a "fur" effect.
  9. Top with coconut shavings.
  10. Slice the grapes in half. You can cut these to make mouths also. Insert a mini chocolate chip into the center of each. Place on top of the cupcakes.
  11. Enjoy! Tastes the best the day of making.
