Low Carb Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon-Lime Frosting


Have your cake & eat it too!

Living a Keto lifestyle is sustainable even on your birthday with these delicious vanilla cupcakes. I have paired them with a tangy lemon-lime frosting. Check out my other frosting recipes at the bottom of this post for more ideas.
For sweetness, I've just used Stevia in this recipe. Stevia is my all time favorite “go-to” for a natural sweetener. My other favorite sugar substitute is a little known natural sweetener called Bocha Sweet. My third favorite is Monk Fruit Sweetener. I often use a combination of these in recipes as I find it gives the best flavor.
What about Xylitol or Swerve? These cause some people GI distress which can be very uncomfortable. Therefore, you won't find these in many of my recipes.

A note on Coconut Flour & Almond Flour

In this recipe (and in any keto baking recipe), you cannot substitute flours successfully without changing other aspects of the recipe. Coconut flour is highly absorbent and requires extra eggs. Almond flour is not absorbent and browns (and can burn) easily
Follow the recipe exactly for ideal results.
