Put a lime in the coconut...or top the lime with a little coconut butter. Pop in these mini cakes for a delicious tropical treat!
For the mini cupcakes
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 Tbsp tapioca flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 eggs at room temperature
1/4 cup local honey
2 Tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp lime zest
For the frosting
1/4 cup Lemon Zest coconut butter, softened
1 Tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed
1 Tbsp palm shortening
lime zest to garnish
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix into dry ingredients until smooth.
Pour batter into lined mini muffin pan.
Bake for 15 minutes, until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely on a wire rack.
Combine frosting ingredients (except the lime zest) and spread on each cupcake (once they've cooled). Sprinkle lime zest on top. Enjoy!
