  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I use hemp)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper liners. 

  2. In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients. Make a well (hole) in the middle and add wet ingredients. Mix to combine. Mixture will be thick - don't worry! 

  3. Fill 10 muffin cups with batter. Bake 21-23 minutes; let cool before frosting. Use buttercream frosting (see link in text above) or make it Paleo with coconut cream frosting.
