I got them at The Real Canadian Superstore, associated with Loblaws. If you go to the Yves site there is a store locator, however it doesn't list the soybeans as a choice but you may be able to find a store anyway based on your postal code. Good luck!

i bought coconut flour from netrition - you guys are so right! the cupcakes are light and fluffy, not dense like when i just ground coconut. definitely worth the investment!

OMG are these GOOD!!!!!!!!!! I did not have coconut flour. So, I used almond flour instead. It was all FAB!! I did have trouble getting the frosting to get to the right consistency, but that was my fault because I got distracted with my kids and did the ingredients in the wrong order. But since the sweetener I used is soo expensive, I just spooned soupy dollops on the cupcakes and they were devine!! The frosting tasted WONDERFUL even in a soupy form! LOL! Thank you sooo much for this awesome recipe. I also used some Torani Vanilla syrup in the cake batter as a substituion for one of the sweeteners and it turned out great. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I turned this into a layer cake and used the chocolate buttercream frosting- all I can say is WOW. My DH who despises all thing LC liked it, and my 4 year old just devoured a slice and said this is the BEST cake she ever had!!! Definitely a keeper, and even though it's bit higher in carbs than I usually do, the fiber kept my blood sugars stable! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy and THANK YOU!!! Cake that actually tastes like cake! What a concept *L*...

I am new to these forums and found this site on Google after looking for LC cupcake recipes. I have made these already and they are on my stove cooling down. I will let them sit overnight before I try them. I am a little skeptical of the beans but everyone is saying they are good. I think I will try to make the chocolate cake next! Thanks for the recipe. You seem very talented to come up with all these healthy good tasting recipes.

Just made these

I didn't let them stand or even cool--I had to eat one warm. With butter smeared on them they are pretty close to corn bread in taste and texture. This is a good thing even if I messed up the recipe! I didn't use canned beans, I had some small white beans I made and they weren't pureed totally smooth but seem to have stayed in little lumps (and I was lazy to keep blending). I didn't notice any beany taste but I don't with the black bean cake either.

I'll let the rest cool then frost with whipped cream stablized with a little sugar free instant pudding powder and see if I like them better as "corn bread" (which will become a staple for dinner), or as cup cakes (which as you know can be eaten anytime).

Love them! Family loved them too! The only thing I changed was to add some buttery dough flavoring to the batter - we had some straight out of the oven too ... not a trace of beans or coconut flavor. My husband who doesn't like either, had no clue! I iced half with a mascarpone icing (YUM!) and left the other half plain to enjoy with cream and strawberries! Awesome recipe, thank you!

Wait, what's this? I was wrong - they turned into cupcakes! Lauren, I have no idea how you can come up with these amazing, delicious, simply and healthy AND go to college. If you ever are a candidate for a Food Network show, you've got my vote!

BTW - Melrose, Safeway or Krogers or Albertsons will have the kidney beans and erythritol. If you can also find unsweetened coconut there you can grind it yourself and make coconut flour.
Where did you find erythritol in Kroger? Never seen it there, but maybe I looked in the wrong place. Thanks! And the cupcakes look amazing!

Just wanted to say I just made these again and used 6 TBS of Kevin's flour instead of the coconut flour and I think I now like the vanilla better than the chocolate version!

Once again thanks Lauren!

Sweetdreams, can you point the way to the chocolate cupcakes?

I made these for me on my birthday. And since it was just my younger daughter and me on that day, did not have to share many. Oh darn,
