Coconut Lemon Greek Yogurt Cupcakes

Hello lovelies! 

I just started my winter break this past week and I feel SOOOO refreshed! So refreshed that I decided to experiment with all the coconut products I bought in bulk from Amazon a few months ago...don't buy coconut in bulk kids. Or I guess you could...because you don't know if something amazing will come out of it like this recipe! :) 

There is no egg in this recipe so feel free to lick up the batter! I promise it is very tasty. The batter reminds me of one of my favorite Chinese breads' filling: 雞尾包 (Gai Mei Bao or Cocktail Bun), which is a sweet bun with sweet shredded coconut filling. If you're ever in Chinatown, you should give this bread a try!

Another thing I like about this recipe is that its full of healthy fats, potassium, fiber, and protein! At only 166 calories per cupcake and packed full of nourishing nutrients, you can feel guilt-free in indulging in these delicious cupcakes!
