Directions

Preheat oven to 325 Degrees. Place paper liners in a 12 cup muffin tin. To prepare cupcakes: Combine the flours, pudding mix, baking powder, potato starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl with a whisk. In a separate bowl: Cream the butter and sugars with a mixer on low speed until combined (6-8 minutes). Gradually mix in the vanilla and egg whites. Scrape down the sides of the bowl; continue mixing until light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with the maple syrup and half-and-half, mixing after each addition and ending with flour. Mix until ingredients are just combined; Do not overmix! Fold in the bacon. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about three quarters of the way. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (~40 minutes). Cool Completely. Meanwhile, prepare the frosting: Beat the cream cheese and butter with a mixer on a medium speed until creamy. Add the confectioner's sugar, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Beat until combined, spread on the cooled cupcakes; Top with chopped bacon, if desired.
