Paleo Orange and Coconut Cupcakes

So the winter weather has finally set in and there in an abundant supply of beautiful fragrant oranges around. I am not the biggest fan of orange and chocolate, though I know that using any fruit in Paleo baking helps with the moisture content.


I also used only Coconut flour in this recipe, because firstly I have run out of Almond flour, as have all the shops around. There is obviously a surge in Paleo baking and retailers cannot keep up with the demand!

Secondly I wanted to try my hand at only using coconut flour to see the difference in textures. I have learnt by trial and error that coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid so if you use too much, it will be very dry, but also a little goes a long way and with the expense of these high protein flours, that is a great bonus. These muffins, only take ½ cup of flour.

So these are my coconut and orange muffin/cupcakes.  I used coconut milk in them and you could ice them, that is the only reason they could be called cupcakes. I still haven’t learnt how to make icing yet. That will have to be another work in progress.  I’m calling it a cupcake, but call it whatever you want, they taste lovely, light, fluffy and yummy.
