Lemon Cupcakes (Paleo) (Edit recipe)

I don’t know about you but something about citrus is always fresh and delicious. I love all citrus.

The first thing our son learned to make was homemade lemonade. So when I received some huge fresh local organic lemons in a farm box I decided I’d make some cupcakes. I usually bake on the weekends and these were a treat!

You can use any citrus it works the same and will be just as tasty.
