GFCF Banana Coconut Cupcakes

Yesterday, we had our Liesegang kids over after school, for some Valentines Day fun.

Cupcakes were on the agenda.

The kids worked together, mixing and making the BEST GFCF cupcakes we've had yet!

I used my go-to recipe for cupcakes, but tweaked it a bit.

1 1/2 cups AP GF flour (mine includes xanthum gum)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 whole banana
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tsp. vanilla (real)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs

350 for 20 minutes.

Mush the 'naners with the almond milk and vanilla- set aside.

Whisk together the flour, salt, BP together- set aside.

Beat the oil and sugar together until they are "fluffy" (about two minutes on high)
Add one egg at a time- allowing them to fully incorporate with the sugar and oil.
Alternately add the flour mixture and the banana/milk mixture.

Pour into cupcake pan and bake away!

I then just used coconut oil and powdered sugar for the frosting (oh and I added a bit of vanilla).
