Paleo Cupcakes Recipes
1. Snickerdoodle Cupcakes – My Natural Family
These are really good cupcakes to make for a Paleo diet because they already have a darker color since almond flour and coconut flour naturally have a darker color. The snickerdoodle flavoring with the cinnamon adds to that darker color so it just naturally fits in. The top is sprinkled with cinnamon sugar made with coconut palm sugar which gives it a fun texture. I think the snickerdoodle gives it a natural look and flavor.
2. Black Forest Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting – Against All Grain
These are similar to some muffins that Danielle makes. So do you know the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? Do you even care what the difference is? Cupcakes are typically and little more sweet and muffins are more dense. A big difference also is that cupcakes usually have frosting and muffins don’t. Muffins are typically eaten for breakfast because they aren’t as sweet and cupcakes are usually eaten for dessert. Do you agree with my reasons?
3. Cupcakes with Blueberries and Coconut Cream – Faith Food Fitness
How do you feel about frosting? Taylor thinks that the cake should be something like about 20% cake and 80% frosting. I think it should be more like 20% frosting and 80% cake. What do you think? Do you like a lot of frosting or not? Truth is it depends on what the frosting is made with. Since this is made with coconut sugar and honey and is more healthy, I might go for a bigger percentage of frosting.
4. Small Batch Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Raw Chocolate Frosting – Better With Cake
These are double chocolate with a dark raw chocolate frosting. They are pretty quick and easy to make with 6 ingredients and yet they are super moist, indulgently chocolaty and subtly sweet. The frosting puts them over the top with it’s gorgeous glossy glow. The frosting is incredibly simple with only 3 ingredients. That’s 9 ingredients all together.
5. Maple Bacon Cupcakes with Bacon Buttercream – Food Faith Fitness
Did you know that there is some debate in the world as to whether bacon is actually Paleo? Some say it isn’t because it cured and might have added brown sugar. Well I’m here to end that debate. Duh! Just make sure you buy bacon that doesn’t have added brown sugar. AND buy bacon that is uncured. I buy it all the time, it’s delicious uncured and so much healthier. Debate over!. Now for a question. Would you eat cupcakes with bacon in it? Just so you know she puts bacon inside the cake and she puts bacon fat in the frosting. You can see it on top of the frosting too. The kicker here is you have to cook the bacon the day before because you have to put the bacon fat in the frig so it will harden. Unless you keep your bacon fat in the frig leftover from previous meals you’ve made. Do you do that? Keep your leftover bacon fat.
6. Vanilla Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Ganache – Paleo Running Momma
These sweet vanilla cupcakes are perfectly moist with a thick icing that is ganache-like. The cake is delicious but the ganache is what makes it amazing. It’s has a rich, thick perfect sweetness/chocolate balance that’s fudgy. The ganache could be good on a lot of other desserts. I’m thinking about maybe doughnuts or a regular cake. What would you put it on?
7. Coconut and Lime Cupcakes – Every Last Bite
This is a coconut cupcake with zesty lime topped with whipped creamy coconut icing. After it’s baked and frosted you sprinkle it with lime zest. I recommend keeping these in the fridge after they are iced because the icing keeps it’s shape best when it’s cold. You can add more lime juice to the batter if you’re a big fan of citrus.
8. Carrot Cake Cupcakes – Kim’s Cravings
These are sweetened some of the most natural sweeteners there are. What’s more natural than bananas, carrots and maple syrup? I have discovered the beauty of Paleo flour. It’s is perfect for baking. It is a combination of 4 different gluten-free flours and it makes so much easier than measuring out 4 different flours. Not to mention buying and storing them. I have a whole post about Paleo Flour with other recipes I think you’d like to check out. I did a little investigation and discovered that Kite Hill Almond Milk Yogurt can be purchased at Target and maybe other store also. I’d try looking at Sprouts. I’m so excited to learn about all these Paleo options. Are you?
9. Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting – Bakerita
Okay, so growing up my grandmother had a recipe for chocolate cake made with zucchini. It was actually delicious and I had no idea it had zucchini in it. I discovered it as I got older and realized how moist the zucchini made it. This looks very similar to Grandma’s cake recipe but of course these are Paleo and Grandma’s weren’t. That frosting sure makes me want to lick the computer screen.
