Recipe adapted from The Ambitious Kitchen



  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup Equal Exchange fair trade cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ bar Deep Dark Sea Salt, broken into small chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 cup muffin pan with cupcake liners or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Slowly add in eggs and almond milk and mix until batter is smooth and creamy.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together coconut flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until batter is smooth and creamy.
  5. Fold in ¾ of the chocolate chunks with a wooden spoon.
  6. Use a spoon to disperse batter evenly into prepared pan. Fill the cups halfway, then place a few chocolate chunks in the middle of each cup, and cover with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top of the muffins.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean with a few crumbs attached. Cool for 5 minutes then immediately transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Overall Rating:
  1. I’ve made these twice now, and they’re quite tasty– they are delicate and crumble-prone though. I really like the melted chocolate chunk in the center of the muffin. We aren’t DF, so I think next time I will try using cow milk and see if they hold up better.

    I made these for a celiac, so I was not able to use the Equal Exchange cocoa, as per the label it may contain wheat (too bad, we used to like it!).
