Browned Butter Banana Cupcakes

My birthday’s coming up so I’m on the quest for the perfect cupcake. Or maybe the perfect few cupcakes so I can be EXTREMELY dramatic and make myself one of each on the big day. These are for sure in the top contenders.¬†These are gluten free (and dairy free without the browned butter) but delightFULL.

for the cakes:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 medium sized, overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp browned butter (saute 2 tbsp on stove top, until lightly browned)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in food processor.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes.

for the frosting:

mix 1/4 cup almond butter with 2 tbsp coconut oil and 2 tbsp maple syrup. Sprinkle in 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.
