The New York Times blog, Bitten, just did a feature on chocolate cupcakes, which made me realize that a recipe for gluten free chocolate cupcakes is conspicuously lacking from this site. Well, I am happy to say that is no longer the case.

In my quest for the perfect gluten free chocolate cupcake, I made these 5 times. Today. Luckily, my boys and their glutenoid friends happily scarfed the “failures.” Here, I share with you my success.


  1. 1In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda
  2. 2In a large bowl, blend together eggs, oil and agave
  3. 3Blend dry ingredients into wet thoroughly
  4. 4Line a cupcake tin with paper liners and scoop a scant 1/4 cup into each
  5. 5Bake at 375° for 20-22 minutes
  6. 6Cool and cover with vegan “buttercream” chocolate frosting
