I saw this lovely, healthy recipe for lemon cupcakes, and decided to try and make them, adding a few bits here and there and using what I had at hand. They turned out really lovely, not too sweet, just the way I like it - and you can make some lime or lemon frosting or a cream cheese topping if you want, I kept them eu natural this time...
Juice of 1/2 lime (or lemon)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond)
2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp sukrin gold/xylitol/brown sugar
A pinch of both bicarbonate of soda and baking powder (optional)
A handful of currants (optional) or you can use chocolate chips!
Lime cream cheese frosting or lime icing to serve
- Pre-heat the oven to 160ºC.
- Mix all the ingredients together well and pop into cupcake tins, moulds or papercups. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes.
- Leave to cool before frosting, or simply serve, I hope you like them!

It is getting chilly out, but not nearly as cold as one would expect at this time of year on my side of the globe, but that i no excuse not to cozy up even still!
It's starting to go dark around 4 or 5 these days, and yesterday the moon was hanging beautifully in the sky when I saw it outside my window.
