- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake tin with liners.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda and salt.
Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar and egg until slightly fluffy and combined. Add in the oil and melted butter until combined. Add in the extracts and beat on medium speed, scraping sides down if needed. Add in half of the dry ingredients while beating on a low speed. Add in the coconut milk, continuing to beat on low speed then add in the remaining dry ingredients. Beat until smooth, silky batter forms then stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
Use 1/4 cup measure to evenly fill the liners 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops are set. Let the cupcakes cool completely, then frost with the coconut whipped cream and top with chocolate chips and coconut.
Coconut Whipped Cream:
Take the cans of coconut milk out of the fridge. Open the cans and separate the liquid (save it for later for a smoothie!) then scoop the firm coconut meat into the bowl of electric mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until compeltely whipped and thick. Beat in the vanilla extract. Set the bowl in the fridge until ready to use.
