These Paleo cupcakes with coconut flour came about because the color and texture already seemed to look like a snickerdoodle. As it turns out, the cinnamon goes really well with the flours and all the ingredients used.
I sprinkled the tops with a cinnamon sugar make of coconut palm sugar and cinnamon and it really gave them a fun texture. This recipe is definitely customizable with other flavors, but I went with the snickerdoodle because it was the most natural.
Cupcakes are a classic, easy and fun dessert for any birthday or another party. They can don't even have to be for a party, cupcakes are great anytime and anywhere. I love how customizable and individual cupcakes can be. They are already portioned and can be easily distributed to everyone you want to share the deliciousness with! Whether it is to bring to your child's school class or on a picnic, cupcakes are very versatile!
And these must be easy because my 10-year-old daughter has made them. They didn't look quite like the picture, but they still tasted good and they were fun to make - and it doesn't hurt that her favorite kind of cookie is snickerdoodles. So these were right up her alley. It was especially nice because she made these cupcakes for her little brother and made his day since he couldn't eat what everyone else was eating.
