Lemon Muffins


Muffins:
1 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup coconut oil (or butter) at room temperature
2 eggs if there are big; otherwise 3 small
1 cup cane sugar
finally grated zest from one lemon
2 cups all purpose gluten free flour
1 teaspoon aluminium free baking powder

Syrup:
finally grated zest from one lemon
juice of 2 lemons
honey (same quantity as the lemon juice)


If you are not on a dairy free diet, you can replace the coconut milk with: goat milk/ sheep yogurt/ Mascarpone Cheese/ whipped cream. 

I made these cupcakes with coconut milk, but also with sheep yogurt. When I don't have coconut milk and I have to use dairy products, I usually choose goat or sheep products. I avoid as much as possible the cow ones. And the same you can do with the coconut oil, just use butter, or ghee butter, if you don't have coconut oil. 

Baking: 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius in the preheated over.

After cooling, stab the folk couple of times in the middle of the muffin and pour 3 teaspoons of syrup, in each muffin.

For a few muffins, I tried to add some black chocolate chips on top of it. There were good, but not as good as the ones with honey and lemon syrup.

Keep the muffins in the refrigerator. The taste is better!
