Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes

#dairyfree #glutenfree #refinedsugarfree

Serves 24 Prep-Time <20 Minutes Cook Time 30 Minutes


This is a delicious low carb, dairy-free and gluten-free cupcake that is super moist and tasty. You will require a good quality blender to mill the nuts and seeds into flour. If you are not dairy-free you can make traditional cream-cheese icing for the cupcake instead of the mock icing recipe. Feel free to alternate sugar with any other variety.
