Chocolate Chip Walnut Muffins

Standard

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip muffins?

Better yet, who could say no to chocolate chip muffins that are gluten-free and refined-sugar-free?!

This muffin recipe uses my popular Paleo Apricot Muffins Recipe as a base, and adds dark chocolate chips and walnut pieces to create an entirely new flavor combination. It’s so simple to make and is an excellent, healthy muffin option for a mid-summer treat.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 shake salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon honey or raw agave nectar
1/8 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnut pieces

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Pulse the apricots in a food processor until finely chopped.
Add the coconut flour, coconut oil, salt, baking soda, eggs, honey/agave and vanilla extract and pulse until well combined.
Place the mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Scoop 2 tablespoons of the muffin mix into each large muffin paper liner and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer poked through the center comes out clean.
This recipe makes about 10 muffins.

Cranberry Almond Muffins

Standard

We just can’t get enough of cranberries this festive season!

Not only are they a great source of vitamin B-6, vitamin C, fiber and potassium, they add a bold festive color to food and have an unusually delicate balance of tart and sweet flavors.

The question has come up of where to find cranberries that are sugar-free. It’s a good question as it is a much harder task than it should be. Our secret is looking often at various stores and always reading the labels. The other all-time safe bet for sugar-free cranberries is Cherry Bay Orchards.

This Cranberry Almond Muffin recipe is one of my favorites. It is so easy to make and is both gluten-free and dairy-free.
Plus, these muffins freeze fantastically, so you can bake a batch and enjoy them all winter long…
