  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard cupcake or muffin pan with 12 cupcake liners.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk together with an electric mixer or hand whisk the flour mix, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum until well integrated. Add in the coconut milk, oil, bean puree, espresso, vinegar and extracts, and mix until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Fill the cupcake liners three-quarters-full with batter. Bake until baked through, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool the cupcakes completely.

Boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the vanilla and let sit for 5 minutes. Set aside 1/4 cup of the caramel for the frosting. Add 1/4 cup of the toasted coconut to the remaining caramel, and stir well. Let cool. Fill a pastry bag with the filling and cut 1/4-inch off the tip.
