These little almond flour chocolate muffins are filled with rich cocoa and chocolate chips to make them a chocolate lovers dream! No refined sugar, just maple syrup to sweeten it up. Who doesn’t need more chocolate these days? I know I do. Especially if it’s healthier and easy to make. These are good enough to eat for breakfast, snacks, or even a midnight treat. Add a pinch of sea salt to the tops and you have a decadent but still healthy chocolate muffin.
Gluten Free CHocolate Muffins
Like I said, who doesn’t need more chocolate in their life? We love making things with almond flour mostly for the flavor and texture which we love, but also because it creates a nice balance in our diet as well as our bank account.
I like to have a variety of flours to use for different recipes simply so that I don’t go through all of one kind at once. We like to bake and cook a lot around here and sometimes almond flour is a great substitute for regular flour in baking which saves the regular flour for other things. Enter these double chocolate muffins with chocolate chips.
We love desserts. We love unhealthy foods. We also love healthy foods. Basically we love food that tastes good and most of the time makes you feel good. There is a balance and I think it’s different for everyone. I personally love turning treats and desserts into a slightly healthier version with really easy ingredients. Easy ingredients, meaning fairly easy to find in a regular grocery store.
Almond Flour + COconut Flour
These two flours almost always go together in my gluten free baking recipes. They really help balance each other out with the moisture level in baked goods.
Almond flour chocolate muffins also have that coconut flour in them. The trick is balancing the cocoa powder as well which obviously I think we did here.
Almond flour adds a lot of nutty flavor and extra moisture. Coconut flour adds texture and soaks up the extra moisture. Cocoa powder is obviously there for the chocolate, which I am also here for.
Making Almond Flour Chocolate Muffins
The best part about these double chocolate muffins is how easy they are to make!
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients:
- almond flour
- coconut flour
- cocoa powder
- baking soda
- baking powder
Once these are mixed up, add your eggs and maple syrup to the bowl.
Lastly add your milk + vinegar combination and stir in the chocolate chips. Using a 1/4 cup, fill your cupcake tin. You can either spray it to make it non-stick or use cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Add an optional sprinkle of sea salt to the top and enjoy!
