Jaffa Choc Chip Muffins

Updated: Feb 27

These scrumptious muffins taste like traditional bakery style muffins, but without the refined sugar. This took me 5 minutes to prepare (20 mins cooking time) so are easy to whip up for when you feel like a snack. A fresh-baked, tender, chocolatey gluten-free muffin that’s healthy and satisfying.

Ingredients (makes 10)


  • 1 3/4 cups almond meal/ flour

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 3 tbsp honey (or rice malt syrup)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 orange, chopped into chunks

  • 1/3 cup orange juice (I used 2 oranges- juice squeezed from them)

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


Method 


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Prepare a muffin tray with 10 paper liners.

  2. Cut orange into small chunks and place in a blender with the orange juice. Add egg, butter and honey. Blend and pour into a medium sized bowl.

  3. In a seperate bowl, mix the almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda, powder and chocolate chips. Mix dry mixture with orange batter until well combined. Try not to over-mix.

  4. Fill muffin trays with mixture and place in oven for 20 -25 minutes. Remove from tins after cooling for 5 minutes.
