Chayim Cupcakes

These Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes are amazing and are known in our family as Chayim cupcakes because it has become a tradition to make them for Chayim's Birthday!

The frosting is super easy and healthy!
In a small mixing bowl combine 1/2 cup techina, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, and enough agave nectar to make the techina sweet and a creamy smooth consistency.  Add in 3/4 cup or more to taste of unsweetened cocoa powder and a dash of salt.  Mix well.  Then slowly add in small amounts of water till the mixture becomes smooth creamy frosting.

If you want to make the cupcakes chocolate then just add in 3 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to the dry ingredients.

If you like cinnamon add in 1/2 -1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients.

For Mexican-Style add in 2-21/2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and add chili powder (to taste) to the techina frosting for a bit of a kick!
