Preheat your oven to 175 degrees (fan oven)
Mix eggs and ground almonds while melting coconut oil + chocolate in a pan.
Add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, bicarbonate of soda, and arrowroot powder to the egg mix.
Add the cooled down melted chocolate and coconut oil slowly, to avoid cooking the eggs.
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.
