In preparation for my little one’s first birthday, I came up with this recipe when I wanted something tasty but not full of processed sugars for the frosting on his cake. And, oh my, is this delish! It stores & spreads well, too!

 

 

Tips for making this refined sugar-free vegan Maple and Coconut Buttercream Frosting:

  • Instead of coconut butter for the vegan version, you can also use any vegan / non-dairy ‘butter’ spread with great results.

  • You can replace the maple syrup with raw honey, agave syrup or a sugar-free alternative such as this monk fruit sweetened syrup.

  • Due to the unique nature of coconut flour, I do not recommend you replace it with anything else.

  • The coconut oil is vital part of the texture and flavor of this buttercream frosting so I do not recommend you replace it.

  • When stored and refrigerated, this frosting will harden quite a bit, but do not fret, as soon as you re-mix/whip it will soften and smooth back out to its original state.

    Would this frosting work to put on sugar cookies? Will it harden enough?

      Yes! It most definitely will harden enough! Just leave them out for a bit or pop in the fridge for a few and it will harden even quicker. 🙂

    Could you add a flavoring extract to this, such as vanilla?

      Hi Alyssa,
      This keeps in the fridge covered for up to 5 days, just keep in mind you will need to re-whip it before using. I hope this helps!
