Keto Lemon Coconut Flour Cupcakes (Low Carb, Gluten Free, Sugar Free)

***RECIPE REVISED*** It's springtime, and these lemon coconut flour cupcakes surely hits the spot. I brought out taste testers for this keto dessert, and it turned out to be a hit. Two people couldn't believe it was a sugar free cupcake, comparing it to a lemon girl scout cookie. A bit far fetched, but a compliment like that, I'll take it. Having a tasteful, springtime healthy snack is no issue with these coconut flour cupcakes. Did I mention a sugar free whipped frosting?

Lemon coconut flour cupcakes

  • In a small bowl for dry ingredients. Add coconut flour, baking soda, salt, granulated sweetener. Then mix with a fork or whisk
  • In a separate bowl for your wet. Add eggs, butter or coconut oil, lemon extract, lemon juice and liquid sweetener
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients together
  • Using cupcake liners, add mixture near the top leaving a little room for the cupcakes to rise.
  • Bake 20-30 minutes on 300 degrees F, checking at the 15 minute mark then in 5 minute intervals afterwards. Look for toothpick to go through the center all the way down and come out clean. May contain a few crumbs, but that's fine.

Peach Whipped Frosting

  • In a small bowl, add heavy whipping cream, peach extract, confectiounous sweetener
  • WIth a mixer on low speed begin mixing, gradually take the speed of mixer up until whipped cream forms. Icing will be very stiff, this is what you want.


*After a year worth of experience I revisited this recipe to make it far better than before. Enjoy!*
Bring all ingredients for cupcakes to room tempture to prevent coconut oil from hardening during preparation.
Whipped cream frosting ingredients don't have to be brought to room temperature.
