Cupcake Ingredients:

– 1½ cups sprouted spelt flour
– 1 cup coconut sugar
– ¼ cup cocoa powder
– 1 tsp baking soda
– ½ tsp fine sea salt
– ¼ cup + 2 tbsp sunflower oil
– 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– ½ cup coffee
– ½ cup filtered water

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 C.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sprouted spelt flour, coconut palm sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the sunflower oil, apple cider vinegar, vanilla, coffee, and water. Stir the batter with a spatula until smooth and fully combined.

Cool cupcakes completely.
