Help! I can’t eat eggs. How do I make this egg-free? 

I have never tested an egg-free version of this recipe. You can try replacing the eggs with a “chia egg”, bananas, applesauce or whatever you usually use in place of eggs.

1 tbsp of chia seeds + 2.5 tbsp of water = 1 large egg.

1/4 cup ripe mashed banana replaces 1 large egg 

1/4 cup of applesauce replaces 1 large egg

Yes, you can switch the dried herbs for fresh herbs in this recipe. For 1/4 teaspoon of dried herbs use 1/4 tablespoon of fresh herbs.

These coconut flour cupcakes will last about 3 days if you store them in an airtight container in a cool place and about 5 days if you keep it stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator. You can also keep them stored in your freezer for up to 3 months.
