Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid monk fruit

Buttercream Frosting

  • 1 stick unsalted butter (or 8TB)
  • 4 tablespoon powdered sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid monk fruit
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Vanilla Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and melt 4TB of butter
  • Mix all dry ingredients together
  • Grab cooled butter and add in the rest of the wet ingredients
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients
  • Spoon batter into baking cups. Batter will be thick so shake the batter down to level it out
  • Bake for 25 minutes, oven temp varies. My cupcakes come out between 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool

Buttercream Frosting

  • With a hand mixer, cream room temperature butter.
  • Add in powdered sweetener then mix again. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth and the frosting has a "whipped" look


Helpful Recipe Tips For Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes

  • Tap baking cups against counter to make sure batter is level. I use silicone cups which makes this easy. If you load them into a baking pan you can just use the pan to tap against counter.
  • Use powdered sweetener for buttercream frosting only! The only sweetener I have come across is ChipMonk that doesn't have to be put in the grinder. It's a allulose and monk fruit blend so there is no aftertaste at all.
  • You can sub the liquid sweetener if making the frosting. But, you cannot remove the granulated sweetener in the keto cupcakes themselves.
