Grain-Free Toasted Coconut Cupcakes – Keto-Friendly Option

I may receive commission if you purchase through links in this post.

These grain-free toasted coconut cupcakes stay moist and buttery! They don’t get dry like so many other coconut flour recipes.

Baking with coconut flour can be a mystery. It often 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, and the coconut flour and toasted coconut give them a deep coconutty flavor.

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!

I love these, I also put blueberries inside. Do you know roughly how many carbs one of these cupcakes has?

Hi Mandy!

Blueberries sound great in these cupcakes! I don't usually provide nutrition information because people tend to use a variety of different ingredients but you should be ale to calculate carbs easily by add the coconut flour and coconut flakes carb counts together. I like to use the FoodData to look up specific foods! Hope that is helpful!

I had a doubt as it didn't look as a usual cupcake mixture when I mixed all ingredients but it turned out well! Thanks!
