Coconut Flour Chai Spiced Cupcakes
1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
1 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine dry ingredients together and set aside.
Using mixer, combine wet ingredients until they are really well combined and even a little foamy.
On low-speed, mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Batter will thicken only slightly and will resemble a pancake batter. Mix till all the lumps are gone.
Pour into cup cake papers (2/3 full) and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Cool muffins for at least 30 min before frosting.

Another good non-dairy option for frosting would be a meringue frosting or use coconut yogurt instead of dairy yogurt.
