Now, mix the coconut flour, plain flour, sugar, desiccated coconut, bicarb soda and baking powder together in one bowl, this is all the dry ingredients so do put the wet ones in yet. Next, mix all the wet ingredients in one bowl, eggs, oil, butter (Melt the butter in a pot until it is liquid), maple syrup, limes, vanilla and coconut milk.

Now, pour both the mixes together and stir. It should be a little bit lumpy. Then, pour them into the cupcake holders and pop them into the oven for 20 mins.
