Paleo Buttercream Frosting

Here is the Paleo Buttercream Frosting to go with my Paleo Carrot Cake Cupcakes or any paleo dessert of your choosing. It is extremely versatile and tastes equally good on a variety of cake and cupcakes.


This Paleo Buttercream Frosting recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you have a birthday party or other large gathering coming up. Any leftovers need never be wasted as the frosting freezes, and defrosts at room temperature, very well.

(Payton’s Paleo 30 Day challenge friendly if you use only stevia)

1) Using an immersion blender or hand mixer set on high, beat together the oil, butter and maple syrup for 2 minutes.

2) While continuing to mix on low-speed, add the starch a little at a time.


The frosting will set-up/thicken a bit as the mixed-in starch absorbs the moisture, and even more if you refrigerate the cupcakes after they are frosted.Paleo_Buttercream_Frosting


You can soften up the coconut oil only, for a few seconds in the microwave to make it easier to blend if your kitchen is cool. Then after you have completed the recipe, you may place it in the fridge for a few minutes, if need be, to firm it up.


Remember! You can’t microwave the butter to do the same thing or it will separate.  Let the butter soften to room temperature on its own before attempting to mix it with the oil.


Don’t worry, making this Paleo Buttercream Frosting is really very easy! I’m just giving you some explicit coaching so you don’t have to go through the pound of melted butter, and half jar of coconut oil that I did as I was coming up with the technique for making this frosting.


I work hard to get all the kinks out of my recipes before I post them so you won’t have any problems. I want you to be confident with your paleo cooking and baking.


(*) I use the brand called SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops because they use only cold water to extract the flavoring from the stevia leaves, no chemicals, no alcohols, no petroleum products, no enzymes. I use their liquid stevia, not their powdered product because the powdered contains inulin, which though it is a beneficial natural fiber, some people, especially those intolerant to some FODMAP foods like me, cannot digest inulin without having digestive distress.


Enjoy the Paleo Buttercream Frosting!
