  2. I just made these and they totally ROCK! I was a bit skeptical as the batter was quite runny when I was putting them in each cupcake well. SOOOOO GOOD!

    1. I've also made them with Truvia but not with the stevia powder. It would be about 4 tbsp +2 tsp of Truvia.

    2. I am new to the whole sweetener thing. Do you mean 4 tbsp Truvia for the batter and 2 tsp for the frosting?

      Delete
    3. That would be just for the batter.

  11. dorinda I just saw your comment on how much xylitol just a few T. less than what the recipe states and I did some shakes of stevia, they were plenty sweet, just taste the batter to see, I could have even used less

  12. oops sorry about all these comments but I also used melted grass fed butter for better flavorinstead of coconut oil, I use coconut oil but I like the flavor of butter better, I've never had any recipe that uses only coconut flour to taste good, and I love that because its so much cheaper than my honeyville almond flour that I love

  14. I am out of coconut flour but would like to make this today, can I use almond?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have not tried using almond flour in the recipe. The liquid ingredients would be a little different if using almond flour.

  15. Should I be using swerve granular or confectioners? Thanks!

    2. I made the cupcakes this week using Nutiva coconut flour. I didn't notice a difference other than the Nutiva was way cheaper than BRM at the grocery store!

  17. These tasted great, however they were dry and crumbly. I would like to make them again, but I wonder if anyone else has had this issue or if there is something I can add that would give it more moisture.

  18. These are the best! I make them all the time!

  19. I had a search through the link, but believe it or not I am really unsure of what would work for us.
