  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill cupcake pan with liners, or use a little extra coconut oil to grease the cupcake pan.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the coconut flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  5. Finally, add in the 1/2 tsp peppermint extract.
  6. Fill the cupcakes about 3/4 full.
  7. For mini cupcakes, bake for about 9 minutes. For regular cupcakes bake about 20 minutes.
  8. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
  9. For Frosting: In a medium sized bowl, use a spatula to fold the arrowroot powder into the palm shortening.
  10. Add 1/4 cup honey, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp peppermint extract. Use a hand mixer to beat the frosting.
  11. Place the bowl into refrigerator for 20 minutes.
