Almond Chai Cupcakes (gluten-free)

Coconut flour and coconut oil will work wonders for anyone trying to follow the Paleo Diet.I have been using more of the coconut flour and coconut oil recently. Some of my clients are trying to follow the Paleo lifestyle. I love the flavor and the texture.

These cupcakes turned out so moist and tender, anyone who loves coconut can appreciate these cupcakes.

The chai spices give them an extra flavor pairing wonderfully with the coconut taste.

Make your own chai spice blend by combining and mixing the following in a small bowl:

  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

These cupcakes are amazingly good.

Add some silvered  almonds  for a fun “Look”.

  1. I love these cupcakes! Someone said last week that cupcakes were so ‘last year’ but honestly, I still think they are wonderful. Perfect portion control if I only eat one. :)
