What you do: 


For the cupcakes:

You will need two mixing bowls, one for wet ingredients and one for dry. Place wet ingredients in the first bowl. Mix thoroughly with whisk.  Sift together all dry ingredients into the second bowl. Carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet bowl. Mix with spoon until just combined.  Scoop mixture into a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners. Fill each liner until 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes.

For the topping:

Using a food processor, process avocados until very smooth. Add cocoa, agave, and vanilla and process again until thoroughly mixed and no green is apparent. Refrigerate until ready to use.
