Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins (Paleo, Gluten Free)

Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins (Paleo, Gluten Free)

Sharing is caring!

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 than store bought. This is the easiest way to make some yummy Paleo Chocolate Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 0.5 cup of honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 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.

Just tried these as my first non-grain muffin recipe. Followed recipe exactly only I kept an eye on them for the baking time as mentioned by another commenter. Mine only baked for 23 minutes and were the perfect moist muffin texture. They are rich and definitely full of chocolate flavor. Overall very good for a first try. I think next time I will decrease the honey a bit as the taste was kind of strong....but this could be a first-timers reaction.

I used 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup oil with 2 packages of stevia, got the carbs down to 7 g and they are great for my diabetic kid - these will work as a low carb cupcake. Thanks for an easy recipe with not a lot of ingredients.

These were very dry. I suggest reducing the cooking time to about 25 min and maybe adding a little grapeseed or olive oil to the recipe. They smelled good and I should have taken them out of the oven when the smell was strong because they overcooked at 30 min and are horribly dry.
