Coconut Flour Lemon Cupcakes


If you have looked at our instagram feed recently you will see aside from training and fitness the other thing that’s been a big hit in the last couple of months is cooking. Dirt in Your Skirt is not turning into a cooking blog but without a race on the horizon until the new year it’s time to cultivate my other interests as well as racing. This recipe I got from and made a few minor tweaks of my own.


Coconut Flour Lemon Cupcakes

Coconut Flour Lemon Cupcakes(Gluten-free, Grain-Free, Paleo, etc…)

Serving: 8-9 Cupcakes


1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/3 cup coconut oil -melted

1/2 Cup Agave Nectar or Maple Syrup

4 eggs

2 tablespoons coconut milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon extract



Pre-heat Oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins.

Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk. Then add the remaining ingredients and whisk together until smooth (or as smooth as you can get it)

Pour into muffin tins about 1/3 to half way full. Back in heated oven 18-22 minutes. They should be golden brown when you take them out of the oven.

Let cool for 10 minutes then remove from tins. Add frosting if you want or enjoy as they are.



This little cupcakes are super moist and a delicious treat that everyone in your family will enjoy and not even know it’s gluten- and grain-free. The best part is as the cook it’s an easy clean-up! That’s my favorite part. Check out as they have tons of awesome recipes!

    • Country life... brightened by a few simple tulips 🌷Beauty in simplicity. It’s fascinating the story of the tulip, a simple flower with no scent, and yet at one time caused such a stir
    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.
2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.
We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
