This gluten-free version of the Hostess Cupcake is suitable for birthday celebrations or an afternoon treat. The secret ingredient is mashed avocado, which brings richness to the flavor and texture. Even if you have an aversion to avocado, be sure to try this – you’ll be amazed how the avocado enhances the flavor of the cacao.

*Dissolve xylitol in a small amount of liquid on the stove. I combine 3 tablespoons xylitol with 1/8 cup kombucha. Water will work. I add 1 teaspoon of grass fed gelatin to make a nice syrup. The gelatin helps the whipping process.
To fill cupcakes with white frosting, cut a small hole with a serrated knife in the center of each. Add white frosting to the middle and allow some to drizzle onto the sides. I did this while the cupcakes were warm to get more of the drizzling effect.
