Eggnog Cupcakes - Gluten free, Dairy free, Sugar free

Do you love the taste of eggnog like I do? These cupcakes have all the yummy flavors of eggnog and are a healthy choice in the middle of all the holiday treats that surround us!

Tips & Tricks for making Eggnog Cupcakes:

  • If you don’t normally eat dairy free, use your favorite frosting recipe and add in a teaspoon of rum extract.
  • After I added the frosting, I gave my cupcakes a very light sprinkling of nutmeg. Totally optional, but it did make them extra cute and festive.
  • Use a blender or coffee grinder to powder the sweetener.
  • The palm shortening that I use is Spectrum or Tropical Traditions. You might be able to find the Spectrum brand of palm shortening at your local grocery store or through Azure Standard for a cheaper price.
  • Trim Healthy Mamas this is an S.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, sweetener, coconut milk, eggs, vanilla, and rum extract.
  3. In a medium sized bowl mix the almond flour, coconut flour, nutmeg, baking powder, and sea salt.
  4. Add dry mix to the egg mixture and mix well.
  5. Fill the cupcake liners three-fourths full.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes and then remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.

  2. Spread frosting on completely cooled cupcakes. Optional – sprinkle lightly with ground nutmeg.
  3. If needed you can store the cupcakes in the refrigerator to stiffen up the frosting a little.

Notes

Homemade sweetener – 1 cup non-GMO erythritol+ 1 teaspoon Now Better Stevia mixed together. To powder the sweetener blend it for a few seconds in a blender or coffee grinder. It’s best to use powdered sweetener in the frosting.
