Easy One Bowl Top 8 Allergen Free Chocolate Cupcakes (GF, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan)

Easy One Bowl Top 8 Allergen Free Chocolate Cupcakes (GF, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan)

Easy One Bowl Top 8 Allergen Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan


A rich, velvety, dark chocolate cupcake ranks right at the top of our perfect-for-any-party wish list, especially when it’s crowned with a fluffy mound of creamy chocolate frosting, and most especially when it also happens to be Top 8 allergen free (because it’s only a party when all your friends get to indulge). These ultra-moist mini desserts come together in a snap with just a handful of pantry staples, including our naturally gluten-free Cassava Flour, and can be modified to suit a variety of dietary lifestyles and personal preferences. A tip for time-crunched bakers: unfrosted cupcakes can be fully cooled and frozen for up to 3 weeks, then thawed in the fridge overnight or at room temperature for half an hour. Bring on the sprinkles!!
