Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 cup golden monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed butter melted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup stevia-sweetened chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line each well of a muffin tin with paper liners.
  • Combine coconut flour, cocoa, coffee granules, sweetener, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a medium bowl.

  • Pour equal amounts of batter into each well. Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Notes

WHAT IS MONK FRUIT?
Monk fruit is a melon native to China and Thailand. Monk fruit extracts are natural, low-glycemic sweeteners that have zero calories or carbohydrates, so they don’t raise your blood sugar. Monk fruit extract is typically combined with other sweeteners and erythritol; this blend can be swapped 1:1 with sugar. For recipes that call for monk fruit sweetener, make sure you’re using a blend instead of pure extract, which is up to 250 times sweeter.
