I love these muffins because most grain-free muffins have a very eggy texture. These chocolate muffins are paleo muffins that are not eggy. They texture of these are very much like that of a traditional, moist muffin that is made with ordinary flour.

When it comes to almond butter, pay close attention to what kind you use. My preferred kind of almond butter is the version that you make yourself at the grocery store. You can see it being churned out from roasted almonds and nothing else.

Many store-bought versions of pre-made almond butter have all sorts of additives. Most disappointing are the brands that tout a “healthy” reputation and claim they use only the best almonds. Yet, their almond butter is filled with added sugar. If those were really the best almonds, then why is the sugar needed?

You’ll start by whisking together the eggs and almond butter. Then you’ll add your maple syrup and the vanilla extract. Once those are nice and smooth, you’ll add in the dry ingredients.

Now if your cacao powder is lumpy at all, I recommend sifting it before you add it to the rest of the ingredients.

Scoop the batter into your prepared pan. Bake your muffins at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until they test done with a wooden pick inserted into the center.

From a Reader:

I made these as mini-muffins (12-13 muffins, 10 minutes bake time) and they came out GREAT. Not overly sweet, full flavor. This will be part of a regular rotation for me. Thank you! :-)
