Fructose-free, Grain-free CUPCAKES!

Sep 23, 2021

These cupcakes are made with coconut flour and rice-malt syrup, so they are grain-free and fructose-free. They are a perfect treat for kids’ birthday parties, as they won’t ‘hype’ the kids up, nor play havoc with their blood sugar levels. For anyone who is sugar-free, you’ll appreciate the mild sweetness of these pink cupcakes. For the others, you may find that the cupcakes are not that sweet at all…If you do want to try them, you might want to add a little more rice-malt syrup, or even a few drops of liquid stevia for extra sweetness. I enjoyed the taste, and so did Poppy. She devoured three and I didn’t mind at all!




  • 4 large eggs.
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil.
  • 2 tablespoon rice malt syrup.

  3. Blitz until you form a smooth batter.
  4. Scoop batter evenly between the patty pan cases.
