Orange Choc Chip Muffins

Orange Choc Chip Muffins

These scrumptious muffins taste like traditional bakery style muffins, but without the refined sugar. This took me 5 minutes to prepare (18 mins cooking time) so are easy to whip up for when you feel like a snack. I added protein powder but this is optional.  A fresh-baked, tender, chocolatey gluten-free muffin that’s healthy and satisfying.

Ingredients (makes 10)

  • 2 cups almond meal/ flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 x scoop vanilla protein powder ( I use GO GOOD)
  • 3 tbsp honey (or rice malt syrup)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 drops doTERRA Wild Orange Essentail Oil (or 1 orange rind) 
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Prepare a muffin tray with 10 paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk almond flour/ meal, protein powder, cinnamon and baking soda
  3. Add coconut oil, eggs, honey, vanilla, oil and mix well to combine.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon batter evenly into your paper liners.
  6. Bake for 18-20 mins until centre is cooked through.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  8. Store in air tight container at room temperature for 5 days- if they last this long, otherwise freeze and take out when you need a sweet snack!
