Gluten free honey cupcakes

These gluten free honey cupcakes are easy to make and as they are also nut free they are perfect to take to school for a class celebration. I made them using the paper baking cups, but you could easily make them using the traditional patty pans inside muffin trays.

It is a simple process to make them – add all the wet ingredients together.

Add all the dry ingredients together. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry. I used Coco Quench from blog sponsor Pureharvest in this recipe and it helps give a lovely sweet flavour with the added nutrients from the organic coconut and rice milk.

If you use the paper baking cups, a tip I have for putting them in lunch boxes is to cut a split down one side of the cup and then fold over a corner. My prep son was finding them hard to eat until I did this for him.
