I love using coconut flour as the base of my grain-free cupcakes and muffins.  The texture is amazing if you use the correct ratios.

These cupcakes will remind you of the light and fluffy cupcakes from your pre-grain-free life.  The chocolate chip cookie icing adds extra indulgence.

FAQ

How do I make Coconut Flour Cupcakes Sugar-Free?

You can easily make this chocolate cake sugar free by using erythritol instead of sugar. But you must use a sugar replacement that is measured cup for cup. Stevia does not work as a sugar replacement in this recipe. For the icing, you would need to use powdered erythritol. Also use sugar free chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

What brand of coconut flour should I use?

I prefer to do all of my baking with Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour, but you can use any other brand of coconut flour.

Can I use almond flour instead?

I only tested this recipe with coconut flour, and I do not recommend you use almond meal instead. The two flours aren’t easily interchangeable.

Can I make this recipe egg-free?

I tested this recipe with eggs, but you could try using these egg replacement ideas to replace the eggs. You can try replacing the eggs with a “chia egg,” bananas, applesauce, or whatever you usually use in place of eggs. Beware the cupcake will be denser if you use an egg replacement.

Egg replacement options:

  • chia egg: 1 tbsp of chia seeds + 2.5 tbsp of water = 1 large egg.
  • 1/4 cup ripe mashed banana replaces one large egg
  • 1/4 cup of applesauce replaces one large egg
