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! 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) 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!)
4 eggs
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! ๐Ÿ˜€

(Thanks so much for this incredibly delicious and simple recipe,!)

    I think this recipe sounds delish! But, a word of caution: never assume it is ok to make a food item for someone with an allergy, or, in the case of gluten, celiac disease (an autoimmune disease). Be sure to ask first. For example, for many with celiac disease, (myself included) I can only eat food prepared in a 100% gluten free environment. This includes my home, homes of others with celiac disease who have a gluten free home, and (lucky for me!) local GF bakeries and restraunts. Food treats are often well meaning and baked with love, but just be sure the recipient can indeed eat them if you are planning on baking a gift.
    Can’t wait to try this recipe!

      Good point!

      If you have a trader joes near by you also can get a pretty good deal without buying in bulk. $3.99 for pound at my store.

    • Emilytwinmom

      I was going to say the same exact thing – my oldest and I are celiacs, and it’s so hard to be put in that position, when a friend makes you something gluten free and while you don’t want to hurt her feelings, you’re scared to death to eat it because her counter might have had crumbs on it… or her cupcake tin might not have been scrubbed immaculate… or if she was making something else with regular flour at the same time…

      • Jesse

        Amen, Emilytwinmom! I no longer bake for anyone else, either, as a gift anyways. I know too many people who are diabetic, allergic, or have a disease and I know how uncomfortable I feel saying “no” when someone has spent time, energy, and $ making something for me. But, unless you are in our position, this is something you just don’t think about.

    Guess you could use semi sweet or milk chocolate also??

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yep… you definitely could. I am just a huge fan of dark chocolate! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. semiextremecouponer

    This would be sooo good with raspberry flavored chocolate!

  8. Suzy

    Where do you get almond flour ?

    • Elizabeth

      The only place I’ve found it is Whole Foods.

    • nancy

      Trader Joe’s has it, too. It’s in the section with the nuts.

    • esg1227

      You can make your own cheaper than the store bought, by putting raw almonds in the coffee grinder or food processor. I do it all the time!

    • Jesse

      Almond flour is really pricey (but so nutritious as all it is is ground up almonds). The cheapest way to buy it is in bulk. I’ve found it bulk at: Fred Meyer, PCC, Whole Foods, you name it. If you have celiac disease, and can’t buy bulk due to cross contimination (people often mix scoopers, and gluten flour travels in the air, etc.), the Bob’s Red Mill has a great GF (but expensive!) pre-packaged almond flour. Yum!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You also may want to compare prices on Amazon, as I’ve found some good deals on there too.

  9. rose

    Thanks, lots of my patients are on a gulten-free diets. They will love these muffins!

  10. Towana

    I will try out the recipe this weekend. I love muffins and chocolate. This will be a nice treat with tea.

  11. shanel

    I love when you post recipes! So inspiring, Thank you!!!!

    Hi, Collin,
    I’m just curious, and hope you don’t mind if I ask you… Are you still following a paleo diet/lifestyle?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yep… I mainly eat paleo-friendly foods. However, I am not as strict as I use to be.

  13. Amanda

    Off topic but I have been reading your blog for over 2 years now, Collin, and I can’t believe how much, Piper has grown! She looks more and more like you in every photo! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I know, she is getting so big! They grow up way too fast.

  14. shirley

    Sounds good – and I appreciate the comments – adds to the article very much!!!

  15. Natalie

    Hey girls! Does anybody who’s a Whole Foods shopper know if their almond flour is organic? I have been buying Bob’s and it’s kinda grainy but really good. By the way, check out the website which has tons of awesome gluten free breads and desserts. I make the pumpkin bread/cake all the time and substitute agave nectar and chocolate chips.
