First and foremost, ensure to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Afterward, line your cupcake pans with cupcake liners (about 14 cups).
Then, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
After that, use a small mixing bowl. Then, combine the maple syrup, coconut milk, canola oil, melted dark chocolate, yogurt, and vanilla extract.
Next, add the mixture with maple syrup into the dry ingredients (flour mixture) and whisk until combined.
Afterward, pour the cupcake batter onto the cups, filling each cup approximately two-thirds to three-quarters.
Then, place the cupcake pans and bake for about twenty minutes or until it cooks through.
When the cupcakes cook through, take them out of the oven. Then, make sure to allow them to cool completely on a wire rack. After that, make sure to take each cupcake. Afterward, line them in the wire rack to allow them to cool faster.
Finally, set the cupcakes aside for frosting.
