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!

    • I felt like an addict on the trails this morning when we encountered tons of thimble berries. I could not stop eating them!
They look kinda like raspberries at first glance. For years we saw them on the trails and recently Forest learned what they were and that in fact they are edible.
It’s fun to combine trail running, foraging, some off trail exploring, and a little sun time all in one adventure with the family.

    • It doesn’t get much better then from forest gathering to dessert in a matter of hours.
I spend a lot of time thinking about exercise vs life and how to incorporate the two into one stacked activity.
This weekend was the perfect real world example - during our run/hike we stopped and took an hour to gather huckleberries. The movement of Berry picking worked a number of muscles and gave us food for dessert.
When life and workouts mesh into one.
