Ingredients

For Vanilla Cupcakes

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (28 g)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour (60 g)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener I used a stevia/erythritol blend for low-carb and sugar-free, use coconut sugar for paleo
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, ghee or coconut oil (melted) unsalted if using butter
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk (2 oz)

For Cinnamon Topping

  • 1 tablespoon butter, ghee or coconut oil (melted) unsalted if using butter
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon molasses optional, for a richer flavor
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour or as much is needed to make the topping crumbly

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Mix coconut flour, tapioca flour, sweetener and baking soda in a bowl.
  • In a second bowl, mix melted butter, eggs, and apple cider vinegar together.
  • Pour wet ingredient into dry ingredients and mix. Add enough coconut/almond milk to make into a batter consistency. I used 1/4 cup.
  • Pour batter into six muffin cups. I like these reusable silicone baking cups.
  • Mix ingredients for cinnamon topping together. Top muffins with it. If some sinks down into the muffin, don't worry, there will be a nice surprise in the middle!
  • Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges begin to darken. Allow to cool before consuming.
