Recipe type: Breakfast, Gluten-Free, Primal/Paleo
Yield: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or melted butter for cupcake liners
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • ½ cup (170 grams) honey
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water (or your choice of milk)
  • 1 cup (112 grams) coconut flour
  • ½ cup (40 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with liners, and brush the liners with coconut oil or melted butter.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. One by one, whisk in the butter, honey, vanilla and water.
  3. Whisk in the coconut flour, followed by the cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Using a 4-tablespoon ice cream scoop, divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.
  5. Bake 25 minutes, or until set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out just a little moist - so that the batter is not completely dry, but also not liquid anymore.
  6. Cool the muffins 10 minutes in the pan on a cooling rack, then cool directly on the cooling rack 10 more minutes before enjoying.
  7. Leftovers keep well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Warm them briefly in the microwave prior to serving.
Notes
The muffins are a bit crumbly when fresh out of the oven, but set very nicely after an overnight stay in the fridge.
