  • 1/2 cup salted butter melted and cooled
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp milk of choice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 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.
