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!
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
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.
