Cook’s notes

  • Instead of coconut flour – use 25 g desiccated coconut and place sunflower seeds and coconut into TM bowl. Mill 20 sec/speed 10. Add remaining ingredients and continue with step 2.
  • Make lemon curd substituting sugar for xylitol. Cut the tops off the cupcakes, fill with cooled lemon curd mixed with a spoonful of double thick cream yoghurt. Place the tops of the cupcakes back in position and sprinkle with a mixture of chopped nuts and coconut.
