How To Make Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins!

30 Dec

I know, Paleo Muffins… it doesn’t sound right.  To be honest I’m not going to lie and tell you it’s healthy or anything crazy like that, but some times (maybe a special occasion), you want a treat here and there, and I will say that it is smarter to eat a “Paleo” muffin made with ground almond and honey versus some cupcake you buy at Walmart that’s loaded with sugar, and also contains artificial sweeteners and color additives.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 8-12 depending on your muffin size

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 0.5 cup of honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • Sprinkle of sea salt

Instructions

0.  Preheat oven to 350°F.

1.  Combine your dry ingredients (Almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and sea salt)  in a mixing bowl.  Mix well together.

2.  In another bowl, mix together your liquid ingredients (Honey, eggs, and vanilla extract).

3.  Add the liquid ingredients in to the large bowl of dry ingredients and mix it all together.  Usually, I use a hand mixer, this time I actually used a whisk because I was too lazy to wash my hand mixer whisks that I had just used for making those 2 ingredient paleo pancakes the night before…

4.  Line your muffin pan with paper muffin liners.

5.  Spoon the muffin mix in to the paper muffin liners.  I recommend about spooning about 3/4 full.  It will rise out a little too much if you fill it up all the way.

6.  Bake for 35 minutes (maybe a little more depending on your over, so check it first!  You can stick a toothpick into the center of a muffin, and if it comes out clean, you’re good.)

7. (Optional) If you want to decorate it with some frosting, then let it cool before you do so! Otherwise it’ll just melt all over the place and you’ll have a mess.

    These are in my oven right now! Since I’ve found a fabulous recipe for pancakes using almond flour, and these are made with the same, they promise to be delicious. Looking forward to a guilt free, on plan, dessert! I can’t wait till my co-workers try to catch me eating something I shouldn’t and it’s on plan!

      Well I just gotta know where you found a great paleo pancake recipe… I’m on paleo for over 30 days now and I’ve tried two different pancake recipes much to my chagrin :(
