Low Carb Chocolate Chip Chocolate Muffins
A low carb Keto dessert that provides a very chocolate experience and yet is healthy. This recipe is from KetoConnect, although I had to amend it to use almond flour instead of peanut flour that their recipe calls for. (I also used cacao powder instead of cocoa powder). It turned out delicious, moist and chocolaty!
- 1/2 Cup Peanut (or Almond) Flour
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa (or Cacao) Powder
- 1 Oz 100% Bakers cocoa bar (melted and cooled)
- 1 Oz Lily's Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 Cup Erythritol sweetener (used Swerve)
- 1/4 Cup Heavy cream
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Tsp Baking powder
- 4 TB Butter (softened or melted, but cooled)
- 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 1/8 Tsp Salt
Combine dry ingredients - ftlour, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder, salt
In a separate bowl combine cream and butter with hand mixer. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture until well combined.
Add bakers chocolate (melted and cooled) and half of the chocolate chips (remaining chocolate chips to be sprinkled on top of muffins) and fold together
Pour mixture into muffin tins. Top with remaining chocolate chips
Bake in preheated oven at 359 for 20 minutes. Test with toothpick to check if done.
