Keto Coconut Raspberry Cupcakes

Coconut raspberry cupcakes that are baked with coconut flour.  Delicious in flavour and delightfully low in carbs as well as being gluten free.  

This is a lovely light and moist cupcake combining coconut and raspberry.   The sweetness of the coconut compliment the raspberry.  I use a low carb and gluten free buttercream topping before dipping it into shredded coconut just to make it extra sweet.   At only 2g net carbs it would be rude not to have a couple!

 My tip is to make the first part of the topping before you make the cupcakes as you will need this to set for a while.  As ever, I do not use sugar but erythritol, to keep it low in carbs and low in that sugar rush…although this is a sweet cupcake..Just goes to show you can have a sweet cupcake without oodles of sugar!  I grind the erythritol in a hand processor so it blends better.
