Delicious Vanilla Coconut Flour Paleo Cupcakes Recipe


My girls LOVE cupcakes. But when I realized I had to go gluten-free and my daughter was already dairy free, we had a problem. All of our favorite cupcakes had wheat or dairy in them. Enter the Paleo diet! These coconut flour Paleo cupcakes are amazingly simple and delicious. I love them glazed with a bit of coconut oil and honey icing. Delicious.
