Another yummy sugar free recipe for you today!  This time it is super healthy Coconut + Banana Cupcakes.  I have been working with a wonderful nutritionalist lately so I can get my kids back on track with their eating and this is one of her many great recipes.  There are really so many recipes to be found on the plethora of healthy eating, nutritional websites that are around.  I will do a post next week sharing some great sites I have found to help you source low or no sugar baking ideas.

My nutritionalist tells me these guys are perfect for breakfast but I think they also work perfectly on a party table as really it is all about presentation when it comes to food – prepare them in a pretty cupcake liner and place them on a cake stand and you have an instant party.  They are made with almond meal so make sure you check your guests for nut allergies.  A great replacement to use in your baking is coconut flour so be on the look out for delicious recipes using this as an ingredient.

This recipe is originally by Lee Holmes of Supercharged Food and shared with me by A Healthy View.  

The lovely cupcake wrappers & napkins can be found at Emiko Blue and the cake stand is the beautiful Les Desserts Round Skirted Pedestal you can find in my store here.
