If you are a fan of chocolate… or I guess I should say dark chocolate, you are gonna love this recipe I found over on StoneSoup.com! Even better, if you have a gluten allergy, this recipe is completely gluten-free and actually very simple to make. But please note that this recipe is in no way low in fat or calories. However, these muffins make for a sweet treat when you get a chocolate craving (which is often for me! ) and are great to make for holiday gatherings… especially if you know of someone who has a gluten intolerance.
7 oz Butter
7 oz dark chocolate (the better the quality, the better the muffin!)
1 cup sugar
1 cup Almond Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, take off heat and add dark chocolate (that is broken into chunks). Let stand for a minute or two, and then mix until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar and all 4 eggs. Mix well. Finally add in the almond flour and stir until combined. Note that the mixture will not be completely smooth due to the almond flour, which is fine.
Spoon the mixture into a 12-count muffin tin (or for larger muffins, use a 6-count muffin tin) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Then let cool and take a big bite out of one! Oh and these go great with ice cream! Enjoy!
(Thanks so much for this incredibly delicious and simple recipe, StoneSoup.com!)
