We’re all about these easy gluten-free strawberry cupcakes by Gathered Nutrition. They are made with coconut flour. They have a fluffy and spongy shortcake-like texture, with a light and sweet flavor.
Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

- 6 eggs
- 1/3 cup honey

- 3/4 cup fresh California strawberries, finely diced (plus more, for topping)
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with 10 cupcake liners.
- In a large bowl, whisk the butter, eggs, honey, milk, and vanilla together until smooth.
- Add the coconut flour, sea salt, and baking powder. Use a whisk to combine everything into a smooth batter (the batter should be wet, don’t worry!), then fold in the diced strawberries.
- Use a cookie scoop (or spoon) to fill each cupcake liner ¾ full.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Once completely cooled, top with whipped coconut cream (or regular whipped cream) and sliced strawberries.
