    These classic oatmeal cupcakes call for 1 cup gluten-free oatmeal, 1 cup gluten-free oat flour (you can make your own in a coffee bean grinder) and only 1/3 cup tapioca. In other words, this cake is a rich source of soluble oat fiber. This is a favorite birthday cake recipe at my house and the penuche frosting, a combination of shredded coconut, chopped pecans, butter and brown sugar is broiled, giving the cupcakes a toffee-like, crunchy topping.
