Very loosely based off of Elana Amsterdam’s Vanila Cupcake recipe in the book Gluten-free Cupcakes. Wow! why would anyone make cupcakes with almond flour this cupcake had a luxious mouthfeel and crumb I assume due to the oils in the coconut melting as you eat it…yum

Kumquaty Soft Moist Carrot Cake

(makes 10 cupcakes)

1/2 cup coconut flour + 2tbs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger powder

1 cup carrots (shredded or leftover from juicing)
1/3 cup coconut oil melted
1 tbs vanilla
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Stir together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir til combined. Put 1/4 cup of batter into each lined muffin tin. Bake for 25- 30 mins.

Serve with cream cheese icing or if you are forgetful like me and never remember to let out your cream cheese to softened just smear with some cream cheese and pour a little maple syrup on 🙂

  1. Hello everybody! Woman with a voracious sweet tooth here.
    I am always craving something sweet, but lately, I’ve been hunting for more healthy alternatives for the
    sake of my waistline. My most treasured dessert is the cupcake and I began a cupcake blog devoted to healthy cupcake recipes.

    I’ve assembled the whole array of healthy cupcake recipes, including vegan cupcakes, gluten free cupcakes, weight loss cupcakes,
    and of course – fruit cupcakes.
