These Gluten Free Coconut Lime cupcakes (VEGAN) were the highlight of my summer creations last year and I couldn’t help but recreate them once the weather started warming up! I’m not sure why I didn’t post the recipe last year but here it is! Over due! Enjoy these Gluten Free and Vegan gems and stay sweet and skinny!


1 cup of coconut milk
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
(Combine both and set aside while mixing the rest of the recipe)
1 1/4 cup GF flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
Juice of 4 limes

Add all ingredients in your mixer and then add your vinegar curdled coconut milk in last. Fill your cupcake tin about 3/4 of the way as these do not rise as much as typical cupcakes. Bake for approx 10 mins, while continuously checking on them! Enjoy!

For the icing, I simply used the vegan buttercream recipe and mixed in some unsweetened coconut as well as used the coconut to garnish the top! 😉
