Grain-Free Toasted Coconut Cupcakes - With Keto Friendly Option


These Grain-Free Toasted Coconut Cupcakes are moist and buttery with a deep coco-nutty flavor.

Cooking with coconut flour can be a mystery. It basically acts like thousands of little sponges sucking up liquid and making everything it touches as dry as desert sand. Not so with this recipe! The generous amount of butter and eggs keep these cupcakes soft and cakey while adding lots of protein and healthy fats!

This recipe was adapted from the recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes written by Bruce Fife N.D. in his book Cooking with Coconut FlourIt’s a great book for anyone wanting to easily transition to cooking with coconut!
