Have a sweet tooth? What better way to indulge than with these vegan and gluten free vanilla cupcakes! I whipped up these beauties and shared them with our home office team and they were a hit.
- 2 cups garbanzo–fava bean flour
- 1 cup potato starch
- ½ cup arrowroot
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 1/3 cups agave nectar
- ¾ cup homemade applesauce or store‑bought unsweetened applesauce
- 3 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
- grated zest of 1 lemon
- 1 cup hot water
- vanilla frosting
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 standard 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, potato starch, arrowroot, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt. Add the oil, agave nectar, applesauce, vanilla, and lemon zest to the dry ingredients and combine. Stir in the hot water and mix until the batter is smooth.
Pour 1/3 cup batter into each prepared cup, almost filling it. Bake the cupcakes on the center rack for 22 minutes, rotating the tins 180 degrees after 15 minutes. The finished cupcakes will be golden brown and will bounce back when pressure is applied gently to the center.
Let the cupcakes stand in the tins for 20 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely. Using a frosting knife, gently spread 1 tablespoon vanilla frosting over each cupcake. Store the cupcakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Best way to refresh!
If your skin is looking dull and your foundation isn’t feeling fresh and smooth, Spray Gabriel Organics Sea Mineral Hydra Mist over your existing makeup. Hold it at least 8 inches from your face and lightly pump 2 or 3 times in a circular motion so the entire face is evenly misted. Give it a little time to settle before applying any additional powders.

When you think of spring you usually envision rosy cheeks and pink lips. This season, brace yourself as the trend is sexier and bolder than years past. Look forward to an edgier look that is easier to pull off than you think. Gabriel shows you how!
The hot lip color on the runways was orange! This shade is flattering on just about everyone and will make your lip pop next to all the pastels in clothing that you’ll be seeing. Try Gabriel Color Lipstick in Coral or Shades of Paradise Lip Palette.
Inky Eye Liner
Make a statement wearing black or charcoal smudged liner with minimal makeup. This makes for a casual yet cool look. Try ZuZu Luxe Liquid Liner in Raven.
Models on the runway looked as if they were wearing nothing on their faces. To recreate this look we suggest using small amounts of concealer. Then mix your moisturizer and liquid foundation to create a dewier complexion. Finally sweep a neutral shade on the apples of cheeks and lips. Try using Gabriel Color Multi Pots.
Start practicing these looks now as spring is just around the corner!
