  • Let this sit for a few minutes for the flax seed to get all In a separate bowl, combine baking powder and coconut flour.
  • Slowly add in flour mixture, and stir until there are no lumps and everything is even.
  • Divide into muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are firm and the edges are just starting to turn golden.
  • Remove from the oven and either wait a few hours for these to cool, or pop them in the freezer for 30 minutes while you make the frosting! It's important that these set up completely before being removed, or they will fall apart.
