Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Frosted Coconut Protein Cupcakes

Jamie Eason is back in the kitchen, and her baking is better than ever! Indulge your sweet tooth with these delicious coconut cupcakes.

I love anything coconut. I also love cupcakes. I decided to combine my two loves into one amazing Frosted Coconut Protein Cupcake! Coconut is quite healthful, but this isn't an everyday food. This recipe produces a delicious, cleaner version of a coconut cupcake, but it's still a special treat. Enjoy!

I prefer to cook with coconut oil over any other type of oil. I really only use two types of oil: extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil, which heats well at high temperatures. You can make stir-fry with it, or use it in place of butter in any recipe.

In this recipe, you can substitute Stevia for the brown sugar, but I like the molasses flavor of the brown sugar. Look for Greek yogurt with the lowest amount of sugar. I used imitation coconut, but if you just want to use coconut milk, that's okay. It has plenty of flavor! If you are watching your salt content, you can omit it from the recipe.

Did you use regular brown sugar or Xylitol? And if you used Xylitol did it taste different from regular sugar?
