  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 5 cupcakes 1x

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (slightly melted)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered monk fruit/allulose sweetener
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon liquid stevia extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 4 teaspoons golden flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon psyllium husk powder
  • Keto Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (for topping (optional))


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin tray with 5 paper liners.
  2. Whisk together the butter, sweetener, egg, milk, vanilla, vinegar, stevia extract, and almond extract in a large bowl. The mixture will look lumpy and curdled; this is fine.
  3. Whisk in the almond flour, golden flaxseed meal, tapioca flour, baking powder, salt, and psyllium husk powder to combine. The batter will be thick.
  4. Immediately scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tray, and let it rest for 2 minutes.
  5. Bake until the cupcakes are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  6. Let the cupcakes cool. If desired, frost them with Keto Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.
