Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 dark chocolate chips, chopped
  • 2 eggs (free-range, organic), beaten (room temp)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Coat a tiny bit of coconut oil in slots in muffin pan or place cupcake wrappers in pan.

Mix 1/4 cup water with one tablespoon of chia seeds. Let sit for 10 to 20 minutes, until it forms a "gel."

In the meantime, mix dry ingredients in a bowl (coconut palm sugar, coconut flour, chocolate chips and one tablespoon chia seeds).

In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients (eggs, coconut oil and vanilla extract).

Combine all ingredients and mix.

Pour mixture into muffin pan until each is approx 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool.

Top with some extra chocolate chips.
