GF Coconut Flapjack Cupcakes

♬ 'Pure Heroine' by Lorde

I'm baking gluten free. No more standard plain flour crap.

No more  playing it safe with recipes you've heard of.

Today I bought a pack of coconut flour, and was baking all morning. My hair now smells delicious.

Coconut flour needs loads of protein and juice to soak up, I already messed up a previous recipe this morning when I suddenly realised loads more eggs were needed for this tricky flour.

Plenty of experimenting to get on with, let me know if you've tried baking with coconut flour and we can swop baking notes!

Ingredients for 12 cupcakes:

200g oats
100g coconut flour
120ml organic apple juice
75g butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1tbsp dessicated coconut
1 tsp Manuka honey
1 tbsp chia seeds
Maca powder
Peanut butter
Mini eggs


▶ Preheat oven 180°c

Grease cupcake tin, NO cases needed.
Melt butter, syrup and honey.
Pour over oats and flour, stir well until everything is covered and glossy.
Stir through dessicated coconut and apple juice.
Spoon into each cupcake mould and press down lightly with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 15 minutes.

Once slightly cool, carefully lift each one out the tin and cover with a small amount of peanut butter, sprinkle Maca powder, chia seeds and top with a mini egg if you want.

Next in the shopping basket - quinoa flour.
