Grain, Dairy, Sugar Free Chocolate Mini Muffins

I am sure you are all well aware by now that my favourite treats to bake are ones that I can eat [which means no gluten or dairy]. It is definitely takes some practice to make recipe substitutions but once you realize that it is okay to go wild in the kitchen – you end up with some amazing baked goods that are healthy and delicious!

Grain, Dairy and Sugar Free Chocolate Mini Muffins

Inspired by: The Detoxinista

 sugar, dairy free mini muffins

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup sugar free maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F and line a mini muffin tin.

In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, sea salt and baking soda.

Add the eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla and whisk again until a smooth batter is achieved.

Using a spoon, evenly fill the muffin tin. This batch makes about 18 mini treats. Do not overfill as the batter rises.

Bake for approximately 15 minutes, testing with a toothpick after 12 minutes.

Allow to cool and enjoy.

These muffins are quite delicious as is, however, if you want a real treat – add a chocolate glaze.

Easy Chocolate Glaze

Ingredients

3 large squares of dark chocolate (70 – 80% darkness)

1 – 2 tsp of coconut oil

Directions

Heat the chocolate and coconut oil and stir until well combined and completely melted. I use the microwave for this.

Dip the tops of the muffins in the glaze and place in the fridge to harden.

Hope you enjoy these delicious chocolate treats as much as I did!
