The BEST EVER Chocolate Muffins

Yesterday I accidentally made the BEST EVER Chocolate Muffins. I planned to make coconut flour chocolate cake, but was out of coconut flour. Using almond flour instead and adjusting the liquid quantities resulted in a fantastic grain-free, dairy-free, low sugar recipe that I could not wait to share!

Ingredients

4 cups Almond Flour

2 Tablespoons Cacao powder

1 Teaspoon Baking soda

1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Rock Salt

1/2 Cup Coconut oil

1/2 Cup Raw local honey

4 Organic Eggs

2 Tablespoons Organic Vanilla Essence (yes it is a lot but just trust me)

1 Cup Dark Chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Dairy Free but you can use anything you like)

Directions

1. Heat oven to 170 degree (c). Line a muffin tray with papers.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients until well combined and all lumps of flour have broken up.

3. In a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients with a fork – beating well.

4. Add dry ingredients gradually to the wet ingredients mixing until just combined.

5. Add chocolate chips and stir through.

6. Divide between the muffin cases and bake for 25minutes.

Yum! They are so delicious – we only have 2 left from the batch I made yesterday and I think I deserve dessert tonight……..

Choc-Chip Chickpea Protein Cookies

Choc-Chip Chickpea Protein Cookies

This recipe is based from The Hair Pin  with just a couple of changes and they are Awesome!

Ingredients

1 ¼ cups chickpeas (soaked or canned drained and dried)

½ cup Almond or Cashew butter

2 tsp vanilla

¼ cup Maple Syrup

2 tbs coconut oil melted

1 tsp baking powder

a pinch or two of salt

2/3 cup organic dark chocolate chips

 

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (C). Line a cookie sheet with baking paper

2. Measure out your chickpeas, and make sure to dry them off first on paper towels.

3. Puree in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Scrape down the edges, and pulse again a few times until the “dough” is completely smooth.

4. Add all the remaining ingredients (except the dark chocolate chips). Puree!

5. Pour the cookie dough into a bowl, and add in the chocolate chips. The dough will be super sticky, it is meant to be!

6. Scoop out spoonfuls of dough and drop them onto the baking paper. Flatten slightly with a fork if you wish.

7. Bake for about 13 minutes. Enjoy!
