Signature Grain-Free Chocolate Chunk Muffins

I call these my Signature muffins because this was one of my original recipes I came up with when I transitioned into a whole foods lifestyle. Paleo approved and deliciously hearty, I always kept this recipe a secret until now! It has an amazing texture especially for being gluten/grain free and will keep you full for hours. I have to admit that it’s much easier to get up early when I know I will get to indulge in one of these for breakfast.  I do have to warn you that they are made predominantly from almond flour which can be quite expensive. I suggest saving this recipe for Christmas breakfast or a special brunch if you are watching your wallet.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ground golden flax seeds
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil or butter-melted
  • 6 large eggs (or 8 medium eggs)
  • 1/2 cup chopped 85% chocolate bar

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients until mixed well.
  2. Add melted butter or oil and mix until all the dry ingredients are wet.
  3. Place eggs in blender and blend until frothy.
  4. Add eggs to mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Add chopped chocolate bar and mix.
  6. Let batter sit for 5-10 minutes (the batter will get thicker as the flax absorbs the oil and eggs)
  7. Fill 12 lined standard muffin cups.
  8. Bake 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes
