This is a healthy version of the dark chocolate muffins you find in coffee shops. I like making them at home and carrying one with me so I can treat myself during the day without having a calorie/sugar loaded one which would make me feel unwell and guilty. Almond flour is a good source of healthy fats and protein. Dark chocolate is great for the mood and full of antioxidants. So really you should enjoy this totally guilt-free! They are very easy to make so give it a go! They are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and nutrient full 😊


  • 2 cups or 200g ground almonds
  • 4 organic eggs
  • 5.3 oz or 150g dark chocolate (70% min cocoa)
  • 1 cup or 150g of maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup or 70g coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp of arrowroot powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Cocoa nibs to decorate


  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees
  2. Mix eggs and ground almonds while melting coconut oil + chocolate in a pan.
  3. Add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, bicarbonate of soda, and arrowroot powder to the egg mix.
  4. Add the cooled down melted chocolate and coconut oil slowly, to avoid cooking the eggs.
  5. Pour the mix into a muffin tin lined with muffin paper cases (using either 2 tablespoons or an ice cream scooper), decorate with the cocoa nibs, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 175C.
  6. Enjoy and do give me feedback on this recipe!
  7. *if you are allergic to nuts or prefer not to use almond flour (ground almonds) for any other reason, you can replace it with quinoa flour. 200g or 2 cups of almond flour can be replaced with 120g or 2 cups of quinoa flour.
