Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper liners. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.

Beat in powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt with electric mixer until smooth. Let cool 1 hour. Frost cupcakes. Immediately sprinkle lightly with additional sea salt, if desired.
For Maple Glazed Pecans:
- 1/2 cups pecan halves
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
