Dr Jockers Comments:
If you are into baking cupcakes you will absolutely love this grain-free recipe. Kelcie’s original recipe used maple syrup but I chose to replace the maple syrup with honest keto maple syrup which has monk fruit and does not impact our blood sugar.
The ButterCream frosting is loaded with healthy fats! The grass/pasture-fed butter is rich in small and medium chain fatty acids (MCTs) that are powerful for the body. It also has tons of carotenoid anti-oxidants, vitamin K2, and brain boosting omega-3 fatty acids. The coconut oil is also rich in MCTs that help stimulate metabolism and improve hormone function.
