  1. 1. Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Line mini muffin tins.
  2. 2. Combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon) in a medium sized bowl.
  3. 3. In a food processor or with a hand mixer, blend the coconut oil, palm oil shortening, dates, maple syrup, vanilla extract and almond milk until fairly well combined. The mixture does not need to be completely smooth.
  4. 4. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients with the wet until well combined (about 30 seconds of mixing).
  5. 5. Fill each tin with batter, about 3/4 of the way full. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
  6. 6. Allow the muffins to cool and begin preparing cinnamon buttercream.
  7. 7. In a medium bowl, slowly incorporate powdered sugar with the palm shortening. Once full mixed, add vanilla and cinnamon.
  8. 8. After the cupcakes have cooled for at least 20 minutes, fill a frosting bag with the dairy free butter cream and pipe onto cupcakes. You can also spread the buttercream on with a knife.
