Grain Free Vanilla Cupcakes

Eggs coconut flour, salt, vanilla, oil, maple syrup, and baking soda are all you need for these grain free vanilla cupcakes. 


Dairy Free Vanilla Cupcakes (gluten free)

These dairy free vanilla cupcakes are made with coconut oil or avocado oil instead of butter.  I used both coconut oil and avocado oil and loved the turn out!  The cupcakes came out spongy and soft, without any butter!  Seriously, no melting, perfect, consistency, and of course no taste.  Actually, I don’t know how I hadn’t thought to use avocado oil in more baked goods before!  


This dairy free dessert is the perfect option for somebody healing lactose intolerance. 


GAPS Vanilla Cupcake Recipe w/ Cream Cheese Frosting

GAPS desserts are a thing! 

Families starting on full GAPS usually have the hardest time when it comes to celebrations, treats, and snacks.  Luckily, these grain free vanilla cupcakes are made with a few simple GAPS approved foods. 


Gluten free baking can be hard, especially when you substitute ingredients.  Hopefully you have all of the ingredients on hand because almond flour and coconut flour do not yield the same consistency.  They require different amounts of liquid, egg, etc.  These grain free vanilla cupcakes are allergen friendly and dairy free but do call for eggs.  

Paleo Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

These paleo vanilla cupcakes are incredibly simple and tasty.  Many times, paleo can mean avoiding treats at all costs.  However, these low carb cupcakes are simple, easy, and healthy.  These cupcakes come together with a few simple ingredients that do not stretch the paleo guidelines too much.  For the frosting be sure to check out the coconut cream frosting we used in the carrot cake.
