A new week and a brand new cupcake recipe. Honey Cinnamon Cupcakes, mini sized! I’m so excited to share this delicious recipe with you. For months now I’ve wanted to create a honey flavoured frosting with a touch of ground cinnamon. It turned out perfectly and paired with these fluffy cupcakes, you will fall in love.
I know what you might be thinking, honey and icing sugar together might be a tad too much sweetness for you? I promise you its not overpowering, the cinnamon cuts through the sweetness and adds the perfect amount of savoury to the frosting.
If Autumn was a cupcake, they would be these Honey Cupcakes. I decided to make these cupcakes mini and i have to say, they are adorable and you can eat at least 2-3 of this beauties in one sitting.
I’m just thrilled with how the cake turned out, it’s always a risk in creating a new gluten free cupcake recipe, I’m still learning about what flours work best together to achieve the classic, fluffy and flavoursome cupcake.
I used my favourite gluten free all purpose flour blend, works every time. I hope you enjoy my Honey Cinnamon Cupcakes, try not to eat them all at once!

Hi Samantha! Can I make 12 regular sized cupcakes with this recipe instead of 24:tiny ones?
If so, does the time in the oven have to be adjusted?
Hi Susan! What a wonderful idea 🙂 I haven't made this cupcake recipe into 12 regular sized ones but I don't see any issue in doing so, I think they will work out great! In regards to the baking time, I would bake them for 15-20 minutes, closer to 20 minutes I'm guessing they'll be ready, but please do check them at the 15 minute mark to ensure they're not over cooking. Good luck and enjoy!
Can I use oat flour as the gluten free flour? Or do I need to buy a special mix? Looks yummy!!
Hi Ashley! I highly recommend you use an all-purpose gluten free mix. 1 cup of oat flour in this recipe will unfortunately change the texture and final outcome of these cupcakes, as oat flour is highly absorbent. If you can get your hands on a GF plain flour from your supermarket, they will work beautifully. Hope that helps!
This helped a ton. Thanks!! They are so yummy!
You're most welcome Ashley! So happy to hear you enjoyed the cupcakes! 🙂
Hi! I am curious if there is a different substitute for the almond meal? Could I Just add more flour? I need to bake without nuts. Thanks!
Hi Dina, apologies for my very late response to your question. You can definitely just add more of the flour, same quantity as the almond meal, it will just be a slightly different texture in the end product but nothing drastic. Hope that helps!
