Recipe: Coconut Chocolate Muffins




As promised, here is the recipe for these beautiful muffins.

This was the first time I had tried coconut flour and I was looking forward to having a change from almond flour. I am over the grainy consistency it often leaves.

I was apprehensive about trying it as I had heard it can be difficult to substitute the coconut flour for others due to it's high absorbency tendencies.

I played around with some recipes and came up with this.

They turned out nice and moist and get better with age.

I am officially a coconut flour convert!



Ingredients:
28g/1/4 cup coconut flour
30g/1/4 cup cocoa powder
114g/1/3 cup of honey
1/4 tsp baking powder
60g/1/4 cup coconut oil or butter
4 eggs

Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Add eggs, honey and oil/butter and incorporate well.
Divide between 8 large muffin papers and bake for 20 - 25 mins at 180C or until a skewer comes out clean.

  9. A Paleo Diet Recipes regime is 1 in line with the idea that the best diet regime is that individuals evolutionary family history in the paleolithic time. Since many weight loss plans healthy that heuristic, a lot of options are actually designed in addition to popularised within names such as caveman diet regime, paleolithic diet regime, primal diet regime.
