notes

This makes about 9 cupcakes, I just make sure the cupcake cases are about 3/4 full before baking.
My friends Daniel and Becky made  this in a loaf tin, with the following adjustments:
  • dessicated coconut instead of the coconut flour… with a teeny bit of spelt flour 
  • loads of maca, about 3 the amount of raw cacao
  • melted raw coconut oil on top…mmmm
