Makes 12 ♥


  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries


gluten free baking


Preheat oven to 170ºC

Beat vanilla, coconut oil and honey for one minute until creamy.

Whilst still beating add eggs one at a time until well combined.

Add coconut flour and baking powder and mix well.

The mixture will be very runny, don’t worry just let it rest for 5 minutes. The mixture will thicken perfectly.

Lined a 12 hole muffin tray with cupcake cases and spoon the mixture evenly between the cases – about one big heaped tablespoon.

Dot the berries into the top of the mixture. This is the way I prefer to do it but you can actually mix the whole lot of berries straight into the mix – just do it gently and only until just combined.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden. You can enjoy these warm from the oven or wait till cool. These will keep in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 5 days, or you can freeze as directed above.
