  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, oat flour, baking powder, coconut sugar and salt.
  3. In a high speed blender, add the lemon juice, lemon zest, water, walnuts, eggs, vanilla, olive oil and dates. Process on high until mixture is smooth and creamy.

Recipe for Lemon Cupcake Frosting:

  1. To a mixing bowl, add all frosting ingredients and only 1/4 cup of the lemon juice.
  2. Using an electric hand mixer, combine ingredients on low for 1-2 minutes. Then high for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. If not lemon-flavored enough or too thick, add 1 tablespoon at a time until satisfied. I ended up adding an entire 1/2 cup to my frosting because we LOVE lemon!
  3. Add the frosting to the Easy Cake Decorator and frost your cupcakes. You can also use a Small Spreader to frost the lemon cupcakes.

*Oat Flour: You can purchase oat flour or easily make your own. Just put about 1 cup of steel cut oats into a dry high speed blender. Pulse until oats become flour. Measure out 3/4 cup for the recipe. Have leftovers? Try this Chocolate Donut Holes Recipe.
