Gluten Free Rainbow Pride Cupcakes


¼ cup coconut oil
¾ cup raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten (feel free to use an egg alternative such as flax "eggs")
1 tablespoon organic vanilla extract
1½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend of your choice (gum free)
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup dairy-free milk (I use unsweetened coconut milk, but any milk of your choice will work - dairy or dairy-free)


Preheat oven to 350F. Line 12-section muffin pan with paper liners (or omit liners and grease the pan, if you prefer). In a mixing bowl, combine coconut oil and sugar and mix until smooth sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; stir until mixture is uniform. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Add half of flour mixture to sugar mixture; stir. Pour in milk substitute; stir, then add remaining flour and stir until batter is smooth. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake 12-15 minutes, just until cupcakes rise and turn light golden brown on top. Remove from oven to cool, then frost as desired.
