You start by beating some plain Greek yogurt, coconut oil and eggs in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.

How To Make Pumpkin Chocolate Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line 24 cupcake cups with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the yogurt, coconut oil, eggs and vanilla until well combined. Stir in pumpkin and sugars, until combined. Stir in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until combined.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, fill cupcake liners 3/4 way full of batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until baked through. Remove and let cool completely. To prepare drizzle, melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl or over a double boiler until smooth. Stir in coconut oil until shiny. Drizzle over each cooled cupcake before serving.

Add a splash of vanilla.
