Dairy-free, Grain-free Vanilla Cupcakes 

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe I successfully made grain-free cupcakes and have them actually taste like cupcakes. To me, that just seems weird. But, awesome. But, weird. What’s even crazier is that it’s refined sugar-free (minus the sprinkles), dairy-free, and gluten-free! I couldn’t believe that there are so many types of flour out there that can be substituted for regular flour. I opted for coconut flour for its extra fiber and tastiness! If you make these, let me know how they turn out!
