Guilt Free Chocolate Muffins

Guilt free chocolate muffins, yes they do exist and are super tasty. The recipe is based on a recipe I found on a Dutch website. The muffins are made of almond meal making them gluten free. Additionally they are refined sugar free as I used dates and bananas instead of sugar.

Duration: 10 min prep+ 35-40 minutes oven time

The ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 150 g almond meal
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 3 large Medjool dates (65 g total)
  • 2 (organic) eggs
  • 100 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 30 g raw cacao
  • 60 g pure chocolate (>75% cacao)
  • 2 ts baking powder
  • 1/4 ts (Himalaya) sea salt
  • 2 tbs sunflower oil (30 ml)

What you do:
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees of Celsius.
  2. Mash the banana and the pitted dates in a bowl using a hand blender. Then whisk through the eggs one by one. Stir in the almond meal, baking powder, cocoa and salt. Add the almond milk and the oil and mix until smooth using a hand mixer. 
  3. Chop the chocolate into pieces and stir into the batter. Fill 12 muffin tins with the batter and bake the muffins about 35 minutes in the preheated oven. The muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean and dry. Note that you do not put the muffins in the oven too long so they do not dry out.

Preparation tip: preservable for 3 to 4 days in an airtight box or freeze them!
