A decadent chocolate cupcake that’s both gluten free and vegan!
This post is sponsored by Enjoy Life Foods. Thank you for supporting the brands that support me!
I’m so excited to share these chocolate coconut cupcakes with you today because I finally made you a delicious treat that is both gluten free AND vegan! I don’t have the best track record with vegan baking, way too many mushy things to count, but I was determined to make these vegan and it was actually much easier than I thought it would be.
It’s almost May (how did that happen??), which is Celiac Disease Awareness Month. While I don’t personally have Celiac disease, I feel much better when eating gluten free and it’s helped relieve a lot of the health issues I used to have.
Today I’m partnering with Enjoy Life Foods to bring some awareness to celiac disease and to introduce you to their gluten free all purpose flour. Celiac disease affects about 1% of the population in the US (about 3 million people) and so many other people have gluten sensitivities. As of now, there is no known cure except to avoid gluten and thankfully more and more brands are coming out with delicious gluten free products!
I really love this gluten free all purpose flour blend because it’s free of all gums, contains nothing artificial and is GMO free. It has 5 grams of protein per serving and includes probiotics! You’re easily able to replace regular AP flour with the same amount of this GF AP flour and it makes these Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes pretty delicious!
Not only does Enjoy Life Foods cater to people who can’t eat gluten, but all of they’re products are also free from the top 8 food allergens in the US (wheat, diary, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, fish and shellfish). This allows their customers to Eat Freely when they purchase their products, which I just love!
Dealing with food allergies can cause a lot of worry and frustration. You’re always reading labels and asking for ingredient lists. Going out to eat is more stressful than enjoyable and walking down the grocery aisles is never fun when you can’t eat half the food on the shelves.
I think it’s wonderful that there are brands out there like Enjoy Life Foods who make delicious products that everyone can enjoy! I hope you all enjoy these cupcakes 🙂Print
