Preheat your oven to 325 and prep your cupcake tin for nonstick or liners.
In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork or a whisk to mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and lemon zest. Set this bowl aside.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, beat together the oil and the sugar alternative until creamy. Mix in the eggs, half and half, and the extract.
For the next step, we will add the flour mixture from the first bowl to the mixing bowl, taking care to not over-mix. I suggest using a whisk or mixing by had and adding half of the dry mixture at a time, gently mixing between additions .
Fill your prepared cups ¾ of the way and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool on a rack before frosting or storing.
As mentioned, you should use a sugar alternative that is granular, measures 1:1 with sugar, and that is suitable for baking with for best results. You will need to read the label on the sugar alternative product to make sure that it is indeed suitable for this recipe.
Noted above is that this recipe calls for half and half creamer. Half and half creamers are generally low in carbs and calories.
I also mentioned that this recipe calls for oil as oil will help the cupcakes hold on to moisture since we are using a sugar alternative. Canola oil and Vegetable oil are good choices for baking as they are both neutral oils and should not distract from the lemon flavor in these cupcakes.
