Super Moist Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

I asked for vanilla soy yogurt, he got peach, I asked for almond milk, he got none (I used coconut milk from my pantry) and
organic flour, he got white whole wheat flour (which I needed anyway bcuz thats what I bake
with) I asked for turbinado sugar and he said they didn't have it so I used granulated fruictose,
which I always have and bake with all the time. I made due with what he brought me and reva
