Candy Corn Cupcakes

Not sure what I love more…Christmas baking or Halloween baking?!

For now, I am pretty excited about these Candy Corn Cupcakes!!


I use a healthy, gluten free, low sugar recipe and then added a ton of Halloween fun to take these Pumpkin Muffins to Candy Corn Cupcake status!


I use MyProtein Salted Caramel Whey which goes great with the pumpkin flavor!

Try Salted Caramel or any of their awesome protein flavors from and use KIMH10 to save a little money!

You can definitely enjoy these as muffins without the icing and candy corn…


But why?!?

This gives you something to do with all that Candy Corn you have just sitting in your fancy candy bowl getting stale.


Candy Corn…do you love it or hate it??

I love it!! 


I am sure you are wondering about the super secret frosting!

It’s from a jar!! Everyone knows that’s the best.


You can also top these with greek yogurt, whipped cream, peanut butter, or cream cheese!

While it’s not as fun, they are great plain too.

  1. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I love candy corn! I was wondering if you could use regular flour instead of the coconut flour though? I just don’t want to buy it for one recipe. Thanks! 🙂

    1. It would probably work, but you will need to make other adjustments. Coconut flour really soaks up liquid so I would add the liquid very slowly! Let me know if you try!!

      1. Thanks! I decided to just buy some coconut flour. I thought it was more expensive, but I found some for a good price. Plus, I figured since I want to try more of your recipes and a lot of them use coconut flour, it would be worth it. 😊
