Method

Cupcakes
  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Pre-heat your oven to 350F.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan by lining the tins with muffin cases. Set aside.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Place the eggs, banana, maple syrup and coconut oil in a large bowl.  Mix to combine. 

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Stir in the almond flour, shredded coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix until well combined.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Chop the walnuts to a consistency you like, then stir into the batter.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cases, smoothing the tops so they can be frosted easily.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Bake for 15-20 minutes. To test if the muffins are cooked, insert a skewer into the center of the muffin. If it comes away clean, they are cooked.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes in the pan before removing and cooling on a wire rack.

Frosting

    While the cupcakes cool, make the frosting. Beat the cream cheese, butter and icing sugar together until fluffy and has lightened in colour. Add the lemon zest and juice and beat until well combined.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Place the frosting in an icing bag and pipe over the top of your muffins.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Dust with the extra cinnamon and place a slice of banana into the top of the frosting.
