Chocolate Avocado Muffins

This recipe is based off of my old recipe for chocolate avocado mini muffins, I made a few tweaks to use coconut flour instead of almond flour. I’m also not a huge stevia fan (I don’t like the aftertaste! plus it makes my stomach hurt) so I used honey instead.

Avocado is AMAZING, it is so versatile and always tastes fantastic in chocolate dishes. It adds that creaminess factor (as well as some healthy fats) and you can’t even taste it! These are some of my favorite chocolate muffins.

If you’ve been following my instagram, you knew these were coming! πŸ™‚ Sorry for the delay!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 ripe avocado

3 eggs (room temp)

1/4 cup honey

scant 1/4 cup applesauce (room temp)

1/4 cup coconut milk (or almond milk) (room temp)

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 F.Β 

Sift coconut flour and cocoa powder into a bowl. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix together. Add all your wet ingredients, except the coconut oil, and mix everything together thoroughly. Add in the coconut oil and mix to combine.Β 

Pour batter into greased muffin tin. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  2. Could I replace the coconut flour with oat flour or something similar? If so, would it be a 1 to 1 replacement? Thanks! πŸ™‚

    • Coconut flour is very different from most other flours and really can’t be replaced in a 1:1 ratio. Coconut flour is more absorbent and requires more liquid in a recipe. I can’t say this would work but you could try doing 1/2+ cup of oat flour instead and less egg (start with 1 and add another if needed). Add the milk last and only add a little at a time, you may not need the full 1/4 cup. Since I’ve only made this recipe with coconut flour you may have to play around with it to get the right consistency and taste. If you try this let me know!
