Red Velvet Cupcakes(gluten free and dairy free)

Ok so I am just now getting this recipe up.  I apologize.  I made these for Valentines' Day but have been so busy that they took a backseat.  I found this recipe at Gluten Free on a Shoestring but as is normal for me I did a few modifications.  I left the sugar out completely and made it dairy free.

Red Velvet Cupcakes
1-3/4 cup gluten free flour blend
1 tsp xanthan gum or guar gum
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tb unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
6 Tb coconut oil
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cider vinegar
scant 1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup beets for the food coloring

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Line cupcake pan with 12 liners.
In a large bowl whisk all the dry ingredients together.
In separate bowl combine the wet ingredients, except for the milk.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.  Batter will be lumpy.
Add the milk and mix well.
Divide the batter into the muffin tins(this made around 18 cupcakes for me).  Once you put the mix into the tins smack the tins around a bit to level out the dough.

Bake for 25 minutes.  Let cool in pan for a few minutes before removing to cooling rack.

  Let cool completely before decorating.

  4. These sound really good, and I like how beets are used instead of red food coloring since I am allergic to artificial food dyes.

  19. When I saw the Red Velvet it struck my curiosity on how to make them red, without the red dye. . i avoid that red dye at all costs. Beets, super idea!

  24. Crazy question, but if you take out the sugar, what sweetened the cupcakes? I am so hesitant to try gluten-free although I bet my family wouldn't mind.

    1. I left out the sugar totally on accident really, lol. I think the combination of the coconut milk and oil with the dark chocolate gave it the sweetness we needed. You could add a tsp of pure stevia and that would sufficiently sweeten them I would think.

  25. I need to try this for my kids. I'm always looking for "treats" for them so they don't feel left out and deprived. What did you frost these with?
