  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder not Dutch process
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil expeller pressed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat over to 375°F (190°C) and line 12 regular-sized muffin tins with paper or foil liners and spray lightly with baking spray.
  • Place the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  • Add the hot water, canola oil, egg, and vanilla to your blender jar.
  • For Blendtec: Blend on Speed 3 for 5 seconds. Then turn off the blender and add the dry ingredients. Secure the lid and press the BATTERS cycle until just combined, careful not to over blend.
  • For Vitamix: Start on Variable Speed 1 and increase to Speed 5 for 5 seconds. Turn machine off and add the dry ingredients. Secure the lid and blend on Variable Speed 5, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blade and blend until just combined, about 30 to 40 seconds. Careful not to over blend.
  • Pour into your prepared muffin tin, dividing evenly (about 75% full). Bake until toothpick insertd in center of one cupcake comes out clean, 15-17 minutes.
  • Transfer to a rack to cool for about 10 minutes before eating, or let them cool completely if you plan on slathering some yummy blueberry frosting or whipped cream on them!
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes
