12 cupcakes

Total time

60 minutes


  • ½ cup mashed orange sweet potato
  • ⅓ cup plus 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups gluten free oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup mashed white sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with nonstick liners.
  2. In a bowl, stir together all of the wet ingredients. Add in the dry ingredients and mix well to combine. Divide the batter between the cups and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  3. Once the cupcakes are cooled. Add all the frosting ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth, adding a third tablespoon of almond milk, if needed. Spread the frosting onto each cupcake. Top with extra chopped pecans, if desired.
