Gluten-free, sugar-free, baby friendly cupcakes?

I want to make cupcakes for my son's 1st birthday. I want to use a very simple ingredient list so that he can have one (I don't want to feed him a lot of junk). There will be gluten intolerant guests at the party. Does anyone have a basic cupcake/muffin/cake recipe that would work for everybody??

Maybe this: http://againstallgrain.com/2012/08/2...cake-cupcakes/ I have never tried it but it looks good. I have her cookbook and have tried a few things from her and they were good.

This could also work for something that isn't "typical". http://againstallgrain.com/2012/03/2...eusel-topping/

Good luck!

Ooo those look good! Can babies have honey that has been baked? I may have to substitute something for that (any suggestions?) but these may be in the lead for me right now!

Anything that was in the honey that could be bad should be okay after you bake it. If you were really concerned you could get more then you need and boil it for 5-10 minutes, let it cool then use it.

Re: Gluten-free, sugar-free, baby friendly cupcakes?

Personally I'd use honey once it was cooked but if you're worried, substitute maple syrup. Here's another recipe that I really like. I'm making it tomorrow for my daughters sixth birthday.

Grain Free Carrot Cake


A healthy carrot cake made with coconut flour and a lot of eggs for extra protein. Filling and delicious!
Author: Wellness Mama
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8-10
Ingredients

- cup raisins or dates
- cup coconut milk
- cup warm water
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin puree or applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon
-1/2 tsp each of nutmeg, cloves and sea salt
- 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and baking powder
-1 cup crushed pineapple
-3/4 cup coconut oil or butter
- 2 cups grated carrots
- cup shredded coconut
-1/4 cup honey (optional)
-extra coconut milk or pineapple juice to thin if needed
For Icing:
-1 package of cream cheese
-1/4 cup butter
-1/4 cup honey or stevia to taste
-1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a blender or food processor, combine the raisins/dates, coconut milk and warm water and blend until smooth. This will create a sweet liquid base for the batter.
Add a dozen eggs and vanilla and blend until smooth.
Add pumpkin puree or applesauce and blend until smooth.
Pour into a large bowl and add coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix well until well incorporated.
Add coconut oil and mix well.
By hand, stir in grated carrot, shredded coconut and crushed pineapple and honey if using. (Can also wait and drizzle honey on top after baking if using)
Add extra coconut milk or pineapple juice if needed to thin. It should be spreadable but not liquid and pourable.
Grease a 913 baking dish with butter or coconut oil and spread batter in.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60-90 minutes, until middle is set and no longer soft. Coconut flour takes a while to bake, so be patient. You might also need to reduce heat and cook longer, depending on your oven.
When done baking, remove and let cook.
Mix filling ingredients and spread over cake just before serving.
Enjoy!

I plan on making my son a paleo-friendly cake for his 1st birthday! That means it'll be grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy free, and soy-free. I need to start experimenting because he'll be a year old in a few months!

Maple syrup or agave syrup, just keep in mind some do not consider those much better than regular sugar.

We skipped cake all together and had brownies and ice cream sundaes.
It was epic!

I LOVE this recipe: http://homegrownandhealthy.com/paleo-5-minute-muffins/

I don't add stevia or any sweetener to it though at all. I do add 3 chocolate chips on top of each one for dd and dd would eat a dozen of these a day if I let her! They also freeze and thaw well. I like shredded coconut on top of mine heated with a little butter. Nobody ever suspects they are gf.
