Birthday Funfetti Cupcakes (Keto)

Who doesn’t love cupcakes for a birthday celebration? I know I do! They are the cutest and so much fun to make. I traditionally make them with All Purpose Flour, but this time around I made them with Almond Flour.

You already know, that Keto Friendly is the way to go! It’s guilt free and you can consume a lot more than the traditional ones. For my readers who want to see both recipes for Birthday Funfetti Cupackes, I provided that for you.

What do they taste like?

The Keto and Traditional way are both moist and soft. The Keto version does have a denser texture than the traditional way. The other way is more lighter and fluffier. The flavors are both there and you get the perfect amount of sweetness in both recipes.
