Gluten Free Coconut and Cheese Cupcakes

These Easter coconut and cheese cupcakes will be a nice finishing touch to your Easter dinner, and the kiddies will love them.

My friend Regina, who used to blog at Molly Mel, has been baking up some sweets for the upcoming Easter holiday. Aren’t they cute?

Easter is such a fun time for us all. We love to decorate and bake anything from hot cross buns, and Easter breads to sweet treats like these cupcakes.

Gluten free coconut and cheese cupcakes. Perfect for Easter or any time of the year. Today's featured recipe from

Treat Your Family To These Gluten Free Coconut and Cheese Cupcakes.

Want to try using fresh coconut in this recipe? It will make these cupcakes even sweeter.  See my tips for buying and storing fresh coconut here.

This recipe has no flour and is gluten free.  With so many people following a gluten free diet, these little sweet treats are sure to be a hit.

For those of you who don’t know, Regina often shares Brazilian recipes with my readers. This one is called Bombocado, and they are very popular in Brazil.

The cupcakes are so easy to make. Everything is done in a blender.  You can use paper cupcake liners, but I love silicone cupcake liners.  They are so easy to clean and can be used over and over again.

They are so colorful, which is perfect for Easter and make a nice addition to an Easter basket.

Enjoy, and many thanks to Regina for sharing your recipe and photos!
