These cupcakes are super delicious and really healthy at the same time. Gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free, vegan and low-fat. Moist, but fluffy and light at the same time with luxurious coconut cream on top. What more could you ask for? Gotta love it when dessert is so healthy it can double as breakfast.
