Do you ever have a hankering for something sweet, to the point where you'll search for an hour to find that "perfect" recipe that sounds incredible right in that moment? Yeah, me too. The only obstacle I've had lately is finding Paleo recipes that are just as delicious as the real thing. I've had my share of flops: knock off chocolate cupcake made out of eggs and cocoa powder.. you do the math. But, I've also had my share of triumphs: chocolate zucchini bread, chocolate mug cake, and the list goes on.
Let's get real though, I'm always in the mood for cookies. Or anything sweet for that matter.
I stumbled upon a Paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe that sounded promising, so Braden and I decided to give it a try with a few twists of our own. Well.. the cookies were supposed to turn out like this..
But ours turned out like this..
How did we deal with this dilemma? We called them Paleo chocolate chip muffins, problem solved! They were so light and fluffy, much different than I expected. It was rather surprising.. and made both of our tummies happy! To see the actual recipe, skip on over to Delighted Momma's recipe.
If you're aiming for some muffins, I've got you covered!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Muffins
What you'll need:
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (we used 60% Cacao chips)
Preheat oven to 375°
2. Melt honey and oil together in microwave for 15 seconds
3. In mixing bowl, mix together: oil, honey, eggs, vanilla, and salt
4. Stir in almond flour and chocolate chips
5. Pour batter into muffin tins (we made 12 muffins)
Bake for 12-15 minutes :)
We loved these muffins, there's only a few left and they were just made yesterday! It's not very often that a baking recipe turns out wonderfully when you do something wrong, I'll take it as a win. Has anyone else had a recipe flop and end up turning into something great?
I'm off to do a little Christmas shopping! I hope you all have a wonderful day. Hooray for Thanksgiving Break!
