Do you want to bake a special treat for someone that is vegan? These chocolate cupcakes are delicious and quite nutritious using oats instead of wheat flour making them safe for most people on Gluten Free diets.
If your oats are "gluten free" than this recipe is also gluten free. If the oats aren't labeled as such they may be processed in a facility that processes wheat, rye and other ingredients that might contaminate them.
