Chocolate Coconut Muffins

Well, these muffins were originally suppose to be donuts... I found this recipe on Multiply Delicious. They looked AMAZING. But where does one get a donut pan anyway? I will have to search for this because they look simply beautiful. So, I made mine into muffins.

While the coconut flour can tend to overwhelm flavor these were still quite delectable. And as you know... I'm a little obsessed with coconut anyway.

Chocolate Coconut Muffins:

10 pitted dates
1 2 tbls water
6 eggs (cage-free organic)
1 tbls vanilla extract
A little over 1/2 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup cocao powder (dairy free)
1/4 tsp baking soda
Dash of cinnamon
Tiny dash of sea salt
1/2 cup melted coconut oil


Combine the dates, vanilla and water in blender (I used my Ninja). In a large mixing bowl, blend together the eggs, coconut flour and cocoa powder. Add in the dates, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and coconut oil. Once thoroughly mixed, add to well greased (with coconut oil) muffin tins. Bake at 350 degrees for about 19 minutes.

Yields ~ 12 small muffins.

These little guys are a pleasant treat and with the eggs, coconut flour, cinnamon and pure cocoa powder they are pretty good for you too ;)

Enjoy ;)
