Cupcake Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

1 c almond flour

1/3 c coconut flour

1/4 c psyllium husk powder

1.5 t baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

1/4 t salt

1/2 cup erythritol or keto sweetener of choice

2/3 c milk (coconut or almond)

Make the Cupcake Batter

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

  2. In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients except the erythritol. Set aside.

  3. In another bowl, cream the butter, erythritol, and one egg.

  4. Add the vanilla to the creamed mixture and beat in one egg at a time, alternating with the milk. Beat on high for 30 seconds to make the wet batter a bit fluffy.

  5. Gently fold the wet batter into the dry ingredients, being careful to not over-mix in order to retain some of the air bubbles.

  6. Pour into a cupcake tin and bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
