1 Cup almond milk
7 Eggs [large]
1 Stick of butter about ½ cup [melted]
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
1 Cup of coconut flour
¾ Cup Swerve sweetener
½ Teaspoon of stevia extract [powder]
¼ Teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of baking powder
Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients
4 Oz. Full fat cream cheese [room temperature]
2 Tablespoons of butter [room temperature]
½ Teaspoon of vanilla extract
¼ Cup of heavy whipping cream
¼ Teaspoon of stevia extract [powder]
1/3 Cup of powdered Swerve sweetener
In a stand up mixer or hand mixer with a large bowl; place in your softened cream cheese and butter, beat until smooth. Pour in the vanilla extract, heavy cream, stevia extract and powdered sweetener, whip until combined. Once the frosting is done place it in your piping bag or bowl and set it aside in the fridge until the cupcakes are prepared and cooled.
Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line your muffin tins with the cupcake liners; if you’d like you can add coconut oil spray or canola oil spray to the insides of the cupcake liners as the batter tends to stick to the papers when the cupcakes bake. Set aside for later use. In a medium bowl place in all of your wet ingredients [see above] stir with a fork or a whisk until all is mixed and combined, set aside. In a large bowl place in your dry ingredients [see above] and with a back of a fork break up any unwanted clumps and mix to combine. Start by slowly pouring in your wet ingredients into the large bowl of dry ingredients, stirring it with a plastic baking spatula or wooden spoon; keep mixing until the batter is smooth. Pour your cupcake batter into the prepared cupcake liners and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, make sure to test your cupcakes by inserting a toothpick in the center and making sure it comes clean and batter-free. Once baked let the cupcakes cool. Start by piping or spreading your frosting onto the cupcakes and serve!
Tip – You can substitute the almond milk for coconut milk or regular milk [does not work with coconut cream or thick creamed milks].
Tip – For the dry ingredients you can switch the sweetener and stevia to regular granulated sugar, use the same measurements.

1 Stick of butter [8 tbsp.]
