Paleo Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes:

Vegan Buttercream Frosting:



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a 12 tin cupcake pan with cupcake liners
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
  3. Add in the applesauce, melted vegan butter, dairy free milk with ACV and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  4. Add in the optional sprinkles here if desired.
  5. Scoop batter and distribute evenly among 11-12 cupcake liners.
  6. Bake for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool for 15 minutes before frosting.
  8. To make the buttercream frosting, beat the vegan butter in a large bowl. Add in 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time or the maple syrup all at once, and continue beating. 
  9. Add in vanilla and a tablespoon at a time of coconut cream/milk until you reach the desired consistency.
  10. Frost or pipe the frosting onto each cupcake and top with sprinkles if desired
