Healthy Chocolate Muffins

Tiffany's post about baking made me want to share this awesome recipe again. I made these Healthy Double Chocolate Muffins the other day and they were soooo good. Even better than the first time I made them. The recipe is from Tiffany's blog HERE. I love this recipe because it's almost impossible to mess up as long as you follow the basic guidelines. I will put the recipe below and tell you what changes I made in red at the bottom

1 1/2 cup almond meal (finely ground almonds)

•1/4 cup spelt flour

•1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

•1 T baking powder

•1/4 tsp Sea Salt

•1/2 cup agave nectar (or other form of sugar)

• 2 whole mashed bananas

•1/4 cup organic almond milk

•2 organic eggs

•1/4 cup organic coconut oil* (warm first, it's a solid at room temp).

•1/2 tsp vanilla

•1/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Grease muffin pan (makes 12 muffins)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix agave nectar, mashed banana, milk, eggs, oil and other wet ingredient. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate/walnuts. Spoon into well greased muffin tin. Bake about 13-15 minutes or until the center of the muffins springs back when touched. Let cool on a wire rack. Freeze really well.

*I used:
3/4 Cup Almonds I ground in a food processor
1/4 Cup Spelt Flour
1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour (I found this at Whole Foods)

* I recommend sifting dry ingredients together

* I used 1 banana instead of 2, and it was perfect. Not too strong on the banana flavor but just enough so you know it's there.

I have done this recipe twice and both times I did it a little differently and it came out great both times! Like you said it is almost impossible to mess up. I used almond butter for the almonds and used one banana as well and cut down the oil a little bit and added some apple sauce.

I agree B. Each time I sort of just use the ingredients for this recipe as a guide. I've found that most muffin recipes are like long as the batter is a normal muffin thickness and tastes good, the end product usually always turns out yummy. I'll have to share my other favorite muffin recipes soon..but you really can't beat these chocolate ones!
