Flourless Double chocolate muffins


Recipe

20180319_144927.jpg

3 eggs

1/2 cup almond butter

1tsp. Vanilla

2Tbs sour cream

6 Tbs erythritol or sweetener of your choice (2.5oz)

1/2tsp. Baking powder

1/3rd cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3Tbs melted butter

2 squares melted unsweetened bakers chocolate (1/2 oz.)

1/3rd cup Lilly's chocolate chips (optional)



I melted my butter and chocolate squares together in a bowl in the microwave for 1 minute on 20% power. Take out and stir them together until totally incorporated. You may need an extra zap but if your butter is melted it should melt your chocolate. Just give it a minute :) I would avoid microwaving it for more than 10 seconds at a time if you are using full power or don’t have a defrost setting on your microwave. Chocolate burns really fast in the microwave. You can also melt them slowly over a double boiler. While the chocolate melts, combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips in a mixing bowl or stand mixer. Mix with a hand mixer on medium or a stand mixer for about 30 seconds. Add your chocolate and mix for at least another 30 seconds. Your batter will be very thick, thicker than a traditional batter. It’s ok! Gently mix in chocolate chips if you so desire. Spoon mixture into a greased or parchment lined loaf pan, lined muffin tins or any cake pan. Baking times will depend on the size of baking vessel you choose. For muffins I baked for 12-15 minutes at 350. For a loaf pan I baked for 15-20 minutes. The only mistake you can make with this cake is over-baking. It will dry out and miss the mark. Check at the early end of your timing target by gently tapping on the top. If it’s all set up and feels like a cupcake you’re all set! Let cool. Enjoy on their own or topped with whipped cream or my cream cheese frosting recipe. Enjoy!

Storage tips! These double chocolate muffins will dry out much quicker than a traditional cake. I suggest storing them in an airtight container in the fridge. I have also frozen them! My favorite way to store is to bake as a loaf, slice into 1 inch portions and store in a gallon ziplock. Each piece takes only about 30 seconds to defrost in the microwave.


A note about brands. I usually use Baker’s Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate for this recipe. I recently discovered that Target brand makes an unsweetened baking chocolate for about $1.50 less a bar. I have found very little difference between the two and the Target brand and Baker’s brand have the exact same nutrition information, 1 net carb per serving. :)
