    Hey Katie!
    So I was wondering if you had ever tried coconut flour for any of your cupcakes?! I’m not sure how/if they would turn out, but I love coconut flour and would love to try them all if possible!
    Thanks,
    Jillian

    1. I’ve only tried it in the pizzert so far, but it works GREAT when mixed with spelt flour (which is my favorite flour for the single-lady muffins). I’d love to know if you try it in a muffin before I do, as it’s on my to-do list! I’d try replacing 1/4 of the regular flour in the muffin recipe with coconut flour, because that’s what the label on my coconut flour says you should do. (In other words, coconut flour is too dense to completely use on its own, subbed for ALL the other flour in a recipe.)

      I have found a 50/50 mix of coconut flour and rice flour works well with more moisture added, try coconut milk, more spple sauce, the liquid from soaked dates, more yogurt. Have a play. I also use 1/2 teaspoon more baking powder.

    Because I love coconut flour – and apprently because I don’t read labels – I just made the single serving cupcake with all coconut flour. Yep, too dense and dry. I will try it mixed with another kind of flour next time. My sense is that it would be great!

    1. I *heart* coconut flour too! But yeah, it definitely doesn’t work very well on its own.

      1. Julie says:

        Coconut flour works great on it’s own! You just have to use a LOT less of it, because it soaks up liquid like a sponge. A recipe for a single cupcake might use only teaspoon of coconut flour and be perfectly fluffy and moist with that amount. I recommend Cooking with Coconut Flour, by Bruce Fife. Lots of helpful information for using it by itself.

    I am not a single lady but just made myself one of these and it was delicious. I’m can’t wait to try some variations on the basic recipe. I had the oven going anyway (cooking beets and sweet potatoes) and thought I toss one in. Yum! I also love that you don’t like things too sweet, I’m the same way. I love natural sugar!! Sweet potatoes and bananas are my favorite. Usually the first thing I do when I look at a recipe is immediately cut the sugar/sweetener in half so I’m thrilled that your recipes are not too sweet. So happy I found your blog :) ~Leslie

    1. Aw I’m so happy you found my blog too! And I love your sweet potato muffin idea!

    I made this today but subbed 1TB cocoa powder for flour and added cinnamon. I also made it in the microwave. It turned out more like a cookie but was delish nonetheless

  13. Hey I realised you put the picture of the chocolate cupcake as the button for “single serving cupcakes” but it isn’t in this list! (Sorry for nitpicking…:-()

    1. LOL I just liked that photo so much. And at the time I was making the buttons, all my single-lady cupcake photos were still from back when I took uglier photos… 😉

    Do you have any idea how much fiber is in each single lady cupcake? I do Weight Watchers and to figure how many points a particular food is, I need the fiber.
    Thanks so much!!

    1. Hi Kathy,

      It depends on the type of flour you use. I use spelt flour often, which would give these cupcakes around 4g fiber each.
