Coconut Apple Cupcakes

Everyone loves a cupcake! I found myself recently with a glut of apples (no mean feat with three kids in the house!) I was a bit over all the dry, chalky muffins that cater for dietary requirements so I created these. Even if you have no dietary requirements you will love them, they are like a yummy café treat!apple cupcake bite.jpgThese cute little cakes are perfect for lunchboxes and they also freeze really well for convenience. Just pop them in an airtight container in the freezer and they will keep for up to two months. Pop them in a lunchbox and they will be perfectly defrosted by lunchtime.

These cuties are gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, nut free and can be made dairy free. They are suitable for GAPS & Paleo protocols. Makes 12 delicious cupcakes ♥Untitled design.jpg

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup butter (use 1/4 cup coconut oil if dairy free)
2 apples, peeled & grated
1/3 cup honey
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

METHOD

Preheat oven to 170ºC

Beat vanilla, butter and honey until creamy. This will take 2 to 3 minutes.

Whilst still beating add eggs one at a time until well combined.

Add coconut flour and baking powder and mix until just combined.

Add grated apple and mix again till combined. The mixture will be quite runny.

Let rest for 5 minutes. The mixture will thicken.

Lined a 12 hole muffin tray with patty pans and spoon the mixture evenly between the cases.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden. You can enjoy these warm from the oven or wait till cool. These will keep in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 5 days, or you can freeze as directed above.

Happy lunch-boxing! Enjoy these little cakes with love from my family to yours.

Glow for life,
