Coconut Flour Cupcakes

by hungryelephant

You may have tried my original cupcake recipe with almond flour – but it’s time I tried my hand at a nut-free cupcakes for all those who are allergic. So – I made vanilla coconut flour cupcakes!



The best part about using coconut flour is that you only need a small amount. Recipes that may use 2 cups of almond flour, will only need 1/4 cup of coconut flour.

My first cookbook – Keto Cravings, is on Amazon now!

However it’s always interesting when I attempt to convert an almond flour recipe to coconut because sometimes it’s a nice and easy flip to 1/4 of the flour but other times, you need to add MORE liquid. So sometimes it gets a bit confusing, which is why I tend to avoid using coconut flour.

The best part about this basic cupcake recipe is that it is easy to alter. Want make it chocolate? Add 3-4 tbsp of cocoa powder and an extra 2-3 tbsp of heavy cream. Super easy!
