Grain free - Gluten free - Sugar free - Dairy free Cupcakes Galore!
I finally found some yummy recipes that this picky eater really likes. Elana's Pantry is a wonderful source for grain free items. Take a look at her tired and true recipes. Click here.
The above picture is some blueberry cupcakes. The one in the middle is without blueberries since I don't like them. They were yummy. With some butter it is a perfect breakfast! I do not use agave nectar because it is not healthy for you as some say. Instead I used a Xylitol maple syrup I bought here. Those who live near me, I can get these products at wholesale prices if anyone wants to share a case with me. Just email me.
These cupcakes are my favorite. Click here for recipie. As you can see, I did not make frosting for any of these because I want them for breakfast and for snacking. And they really don't need the frosting. These coconut cupcakes I also used the xylitol maple syrup instead of agave nectar.
The last batch I made today were the chocolate cupcakes. Click here. I used cocoa powder because I didn't have cacao powder. And since honey is a no, no on this diet I used xylitol honey from Nature's hallow. Click here. I also added some xylitol because I tasted the batter and it seemed bland. All in all I did not like these cupcakes a lot. But with some butter they will be tasty, I am sure.
Notice that all the recipes I choose used coconut flour. My almond flour wont be here till Wed. Although, I think I may run to get some tomorrow. Coconut is so good for you. These are truly great healthy cupcakes. That is an oxymoron for sure.
