Thank you guys so much for the birthday love these last two days!
I am having a great birthday! My MOM SURPRISED ME in NYC!!! How special is that!?! So we’ve been having a beautiful and fun time together!
So for a birthday treat, I made STRAWBERRY CUPCAKES! Yep! They’re gluten free, paleo and Specific Carb Diet friendly!
How’s that, you ask? Well…they’re made with ALMOND FLOUR! So not only are they grain free, but they’re also protein powerhouses!
And SO incredibly delicious. And cute too 🙂 All they needed were a pair of black and white saddle shoes and they were ready to party! 🙂
And just a note, I have not made these with a flax/chia egg, so I don’t know if there’s a vegan version of these, sorry!!
Here’s What You Need! (Makes 4 cupcakes)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chopped super-ripe strawberries
tiny pinch of salt
2 Tbsp honey (for SCD) or 2 Tbsp stevia ((This is BY FAR the best brand — the one that doesn’t have that “stevia” taste))
Stand mixer, or hand mixer
Nonstick muffin tin
Cupcake Liners (these ones are ADORABLE!)
Medium sized bowl
Good Chef’s Knife (This is the one I use and love)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form medium peaks. Fold in your almond flour, salt, and sweetener. Finally, fold in your strawberries.
Line a cupcake tin with 4 liners. Spoon 1/4 cup of the batter into each tin. Bake for 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
These cupcakes were just the perfect sweet treat to celebrate! They were wonderful! The texture was amazing: light, airy, spongy, delicate — Just fabulous!
And the flavor was just outstanding! They weren’t overwhelmingly sweet: they were just right. They allowed the beautiful flavor of the strawberries to shine through! And there was a subtle nuttiness from the almond flour to compliment the fresh, sweet strawberries!
It was so nice to be able to enjoy a sweet dessert that was SCD-legal on my birthday! And let me tell ya – they were a hit! My mom loved them! We both had two! 🙂
Here’s to another awesome trip around the sun!
What’s YOUR favorite kind of birthday cake? Growing up, I always had a Dairy Queen ice cream cake! YUM! What about you??
