If you like my Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes, you’ll find these Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes irresistible. This Paleo dessert recipe is not only quick and easy to make, it is nut-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free.

So what’s in these moist vanilla cupcakes? They’re made with coconut flour. Yes, for all of you nut-free folks, this is the perfect nut-free dessert. If you are looking for more nut-free recipes, hop on over to my nut-free recipes page.

Top your Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes with my Paleo Chocolate Frosting (or your own frosting recipe) for an extra special birthday or holiday treat. I love making vanilla cupcakes anytime of year; this recipe, with only seven ingredients can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes. Wondering how to make vanilla cupcakes? Here is your answer! I hope you enjoy these Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes as much as we do. They’re quite a treat.

I’m anticipating that some of you may want to know if this vanilla cupcake recipe can be made without eggs. I have not tried doing this myself so am not entirely sure, but given my success at experimenting with egg-free baking (and remember I use only grain-free ingredients), I very much doubt it.

In terms of your other substitution questions regarding this recipe (as well as others), as I have said for years, I wish I had a crystal ball and could predict which substitutions would work and which wouldn’t. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet found such a thing (if I did it would save me the 10 rounds or so I do of testing every recipe on this website). The only way I get an answer to a substitution question is to test it out. With real ingredients. So go for it guys. Test out your substitutions, and after you do, leave a comment so that others can learn from you. Let’s all teach each other.
