Paleo(ish) Strawberry Cupcakes


Gluten free, grain free, high protein strawberry cupcakes? Yes! Yum! The kids had fun eating these. Whipped cream and fresh strawberries on top optional, but highly recommended! 🙂

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (I used tapioca powder since I did not have this ingredient.. arrowroot powder is used as a thickening agent)
  • <¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup agave nectar or honey (I used 1/4 cup, and these were plenty sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • Whipped cream and more strawberries for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 8 muffin cups with paper liners (or 12 mini muffin cups).
  • In a large bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot powder, salt, and baking soda. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, agave nectar, and vanilla extract. Blend the wet ingredients into the coconut flour mixture with a handheld mixer until thoroughly combined, then fold in the strawberries.
  • Scoop cup of batter into each prepared muffin cup.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for 1 hour.
