Double Chocolate Apricot Cake

Here is my recipe for egg free paleoish ;-) chocolate cake.
2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sunnut butter
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup apricot chopped

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all dry ingredients and stir thoroughly.

Melt the coconut oil. Stir together all the wet ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Whisk thoroughly.
Chop up the apricots so they are about the size of your chocolate chips. Sprinkle them into the batter making sure to separate them. They tend to stick together.
Add the chocolate chips. Fold into batter.

Scoop all the batter into cupcake tins or into a greased cake pan. Lining the pan with parchment paper will help to remove the cake.

I chose to do cupcakes in silicone liners.

Bake cupcakes for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
