Blueberry Cupcakes: Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Guilt Free

A friend of mine posted this little cake recipe on Facebook the other day and added an open invitation to come eat with her.  Well, since she lives a mile away, I took her up on it. I really can not believe I was the only one! More for me! She made a wonderful mistake, and used raspberries instead of strawberries which was just delightful! I think it would be good with any fruit. Today, I chose blueberries because I happen to have a lot of them. I also fortified them up with the addition of Blendfresh Purple Fruits and Veggies, but that is certainly optional!  I baked them in the oven as it has become kind of against my food religion to kill my perfectly good food in a microwave...plus it is broken and has been for over a year. So, use silicone, ramekins, muffin tins or whatever you please and enjoy a guilt free treat!

Blueberry and Cream Cupcakes



6 T butter
6 T powdered xylitol (use a spice grinder or blender to powder this coarse sweetener)
3 Eggs
3/4 cup pureed blueberries (or any berry or mix of your choice)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 T coconut flour
1 scoop Purple Blendfresh (optional)
3/4 cup almond flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Cream the butter, xylitol, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Then add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Spoon into 12 muffin cups. Bake at 350 for 12-15 min or until set. Allow to cool completely. Eat as muffins or for a fun dessert, add the Blueberries and Cream Frosting below.
 



Blueberries and Cream Frosting

1/2 cup blueberries (or any berry or mix of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 scoop of Purple Blendfresh (optional)
Stevia to taste

Add all of the ingredients to a blender or magic bullet and process until the cream is whipped, thick and purple. Pipe it on or just dump the cream over the cake. Or forget the cake and pipe it directly into your mouth. 

My son asked if they are really cupcakes or just muffins with frosting on them. Who cares? If it is covered in cream you can call it anything you want!
