Moist and rich Coconut Flour Chocolate Muffins make a decadent breakfast treat or snack that is gluten free and paleo friendly!
I've got a very special Sunday treat for you. Chocolate and a video.
CHOCOLATE. VIDEO! (scroll back up in case you missed it)
These wonderfully soft and moist chocolate muffins are a recipe from my ebook "Coconut Flour Muffins, Pancakes & Mug Cakes" that launches on Tuesday, July 12!
------->>>>>> UPDATE: My eBook is now available HERE! <<<<<---------
We are actually on a road trip through the Canadian Rockies today - from Kelowna, BC to Calgary, AB. I am literally typing this post from the car. Luckily, I don't get motion sick easily.
After having spend the last month with my family we are on our way to spend a week with Konrad's family before we start our next traveling adventure in Mexico.
So yeah, it seems like there is always something going on that is keeping us super occupied. All the while I have this ebook waiting to be released. I just felt like there never was a right (or enough) time for it.
Finally, I decided that a perfect time will never come, so I might as well release my first little book out to the world (my little blog world) and hope the world would receive it kindly.
Also, it's always a good time for chocolate! And there is plenty of that in the book. Today's muffins (just look at those beauties) are a delicious, little preview. But I am not just teasing you with mouthwatering pictures. No, I also give you the full recipe.
So go make these amazing double chocolate muffins that are entirely grain and gluten free, clean eating and paleo friendly!
Check out the pancake teaser (including video) that I shared on Friday and get excited for more coconut flour treats. Yes, I have one more teaser recipe coming.

VIDEO: How to Make Paleo Double Chocolate Muffins
Coconut Flour Chocolate Muffins
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup tapioca flour *
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup coconut oil melted
- ½ cup maple syrup **
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoon coconut milk if needed
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375° F. Grease or line a muffin pan.
- In a bowl, whisk together coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
- In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract) until smooth and combined.
- Add the flour mix to the wet mixture and stir until all lumps are gone. (Alternatively, you can blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender.)
- If the batter seems dry, stir in 1-2 tablespoons of coconut milk.
- Divide batter into 12 muffin cavities. Top each with chocolate chips. Bake for 14-17 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Allow muffins to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store covered.
I used cacao powder instead, worked great!
Moist, chocolate, made vegan.
I subbed arrowroot powder for the tapioca (1:1), cocoa powder for cocoa (1:1), and flax “egg” instead of egg (2 tbps flax meal and 6 tbsp water, let sit for at least 5 minutes), coconut sugar instead of maple. They turned out fantastic! Keeping this recipe on hand.

Wonderful! So glad to hear these worked with flax egg too. I am sure this will be helpful for other readers too
I've tried this recipe several times replacing the tapioca flour with whole wheat flour and it always turned to be great!
But I would love to make this muffin a little bit fluffier. Can I use 1 tsp baking powder?
I just made these muffins and they are super yummy. Thanks for sharing!
* I used brown rice flour instead of tapioca flour.
Could i substitute the tapioca flour for regular flour or ground oats or extra coconut flour?
You can omit the tapioca flour - it is there for a softer/smoother texture but the recipe works without as well. But actually, my sister confided in me that she makes my coconut flour pancakes and substitute regular flour for the tapioca, since they don't have any issues with wheat/gluten in the family
can i make these without the eggs. hubby is allergic to the eggs. Thanks!
I am not sure. Coconut flour usually really needs eggs but an egg replacer may work
Hi! Do you know if I could make this with blueberries and just leave out the cocoa powder? The recipe was the best paleo muffin recipe I've tried so I'd love to adapt it if possible. Thanks!
I think you should be able to leave out the cocoa and still have a yummy muffin. I often make a blueberry version, that has 2 mashed ripe bananas in the batter. That way I can reduce the sweetener to 1/4 c and the oil to 1/3 cup.
Thank you! I just left out the cocoa and it was great!
Chocolate chips without the milk it's available or not?
Yes! I like Enjoy Life brand (http://amzn.to/2gBRyZk) for allergy friendly (dairy, nut, soy free) chocolate chips.
Just terrific! A big hit! Do you have any idea of the calories per serving?
Hi Lauren, I don't usually count calories, but I plugged the ingredients into My Fitness Pal's nutrition calculator and it seems to come to 213 calories per serving. Hope this helps
Do you know the fiber count?
Just recalculated everything with a new program I trust better and updated above. It comes out to 3 grams of fiber.
