3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla or vanilla bean paste
3/4 cup milk (or hemp milk)
1 cup granola

for the frosting:
3/4 cup unsalted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
3 - 4 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla bean paste
sprinkles of granola for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 portion cupcake pan with paper cupcake liners, or thoroughly brush with olive oil if not using liners. In bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. Set aside. In batter bowl, using electric beater or a hand whisk, thoroughly mix the soft butter with the sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk to make it nice and light and fluffy. Remove beater and using a spatula thoroughly blend in the flour mixture along with the granola. Spoon into the cupcake pans, filling nearly to the top of each. Batter will be thick,no need to smooth it off just let it be slightly peaked. Bake 30 - 35 minutes, or until nicely browned and tests done when lightly touched with your finger. Set aside to cool on a rack. For the frosting, in a heavy bottomed skillet heat the butter gently until browned, but not burned. Blend in sugar, milk and vanilla. Cool several minutes, and then spread on the cupcakes, and then sprinkle each with some granola.
