    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    3 Tablespoons Butter, softened
    3 Tablespoons Applesauce
    1 3/4 cups Coconut sugar
    2 Large Eggs at room temperature
    2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract

Line a cupcake pan with liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, applesauce and coconut sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Add the vanilla. Combine the flour mixture with the wet mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat well until combined. Preheat your oven to 350. Fill the cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool.
