Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Recipe adapted from Elana’s Pantry

This is always my easy cupcake go-to.  Today we celebrated my youngest son’s 4th birthday and at his request we made vanilla cupcakes with creamy chocolate frosting. There is only one bowl to clean and it’s quick and easy. I prepare the complete batter in the food processor and bake them in the toaster oven!
