Whipping up the Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes 

Step One

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine quinoa and water in a pot and cook according to package instructions. Let cool completely.

Step Two

Combine almond milk, eggs and vanilla in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add cooked quinoa, applesauce and honey. Continue to blend until well combined.

Step Three

Whisk together the complete truth protein, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Add contents to the blender. Mix well.

Step Four 

Pour batter into muffin cups and bake for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove muffins from oven and cool on wire racks.

Prepare frosting while cupcakes are cooling. Spoon out the portion of the coconut milk that has solidified. Do not use the liquid. Add the remaining ingredients (except candy canes) and mix well. Spread evenly over cupcakes when they are completely cooled. Add an extra sprinkle of crushed candy cane to the top of the cupcakes for extra decoration.
