  • Mix the melted butter, sweetener, coconut flour, baking powder, vanilla, lemon juice and zest together.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing between each addition.
  • Taste the cupcake batter to ensure you have used enough sweetener and flavours to mask the subtle taste of coconut from the coconut flour.
  • Divide the mixture between 12 cupcake cases.
  • Press in a few fresh blueberries in the batter of each cupcake.
  • Bake at 180C/350F for 15 minutes, or until golden on the outside, and cooked in the centre. Ovens will vary so test as the cupcakes are baking.
  • Cover with sugar-free ream cheese frosting. Vanilla or lemon flavour is perfect. Garnish with fresh blueberries and lemon zest.
