In a large bowl mix together eggs, lemon juice, vanilla, lemon zest, lemon essential oil and honey. Add in almond flour, salt and baking soda and mix together until well combined. Heat coconut oil or butter into a griddle or skillet over medium heat. One at a time scoop 1 very heaping tablespoon or half of a 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet. At this time I like to hand place the blueberries on top of the cooking pancakes so that I can control the amount of blueberries in each pancake. Pancakes will begin to form little bubbles all over when ready to flip. Flip over and cook other side for an additional minute or so. Remove from heat and repeat the process with the remaining batter. We like to top with the Lemon Honey Yogurt, maple syrup and extra blueberries.
Makes 20 Cupcakes
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 pasture eggs
1 cup honey (or other natural sweetener)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter or coconut oil (I actually do 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup coconut oil)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Blend all wet ingredients together with a whisk or electric mixer.
Blend all dry ingredients together in a small bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with a whisk or electric mixer.
Blend together until there are more lumps.
Fill muffin liners about 2/3 the way full with the batter.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool then frost.
8 oz organic cream cheese
8 oz pasture butter (I use Kerrygold)
4 tablespoons organic maple syrup
2 tablespoons local honey
Let the cream cheese and butter sit on the counter to soften and come to room temperature. Once softened, place all the ingredients into a medium sized bowl. Mix with an electric hand mixer until the icing is smooth.
For these particular cupcakes I placed the icing in a plastic sandwich bag and then cut a small piece off one bottom corner. Then I iced the cupcakes starting with a circle on the outer edge and working my way in. I like the way that looked rustically pretty!
