Ingredients

    Cupcakes

    Buttermilk, .75 cup
    Coconut Oil, .25 cup
    Egg, fresh, 1 large
    Banana, fresh, 1 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long)

    Frosting
    Whipped Cream cheese - 4 oz ( half package)
    Erythritol 3 tbsp

Tips

The consistency will not be liquidy when making the cupcake mix but that's ok as banana will make it moist once baked.


Directions

Turn oven on to 375 degrees.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mash banana and to the dry ingredients as well as rest of wet ingredients ( buttermilk, coconut oil, egg, vanilla ). Mix together well either with a spatula or with hand mixer ( I used spatula ). Once mixed, spray a little coconut oil or other non stick oil into the cupcake trays and spoon the mixture into the tray.
Bake in the oven for approx 25 mins.

To make the frosting:
Place cream cheese into a bowl and add erythritol and mix well for few minutes until fluffy. Place in the fridge until the cupcakes are baking and apply on top of cupcakes with a spatula once they cool down.
