Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins.

How flippin’ good are muffins? We’re HUGE fans. Question though, is there really, truly a difference between muffins and cupcakes? Maybe it’s all in the icing? But TECHNICALLY both can be iced.

Conclusion: we don’t think so. They’re pretty much the same thing. SO today we’re sharing Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins… or in the case you’re after a cupcake recipe… we’re sharing Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Cupcakes (ours aren’t iced… but here’s a paleo icing recipe!).

Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins

The reason we made these paleo muffins egg free is because we literally ran out of eggs and we needed muffins stat… we’re pretty pleased to say they turned out ridiculously amazing (skeptics of the chia gel egg replacement… no need for that!). If you like/can eat eggs, you can just swap the chia gel for 2 eggs! They will work and be super yum.

PLUS! Let’s be real right now. The fact that we didn’t use any sweetener means that these Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins are a tad bitter (Merrymaker Dad’s words), so if you’re not used to it, try the mixture before you bake it.

Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins

Not sweet enough? Then add 1-2 tbs. of maple syrup or honey! Easy as! Eventually your taste buds will get used to the not so sweet sweets… and then when you DO use sweetener you will be like ‘Holey heck… that’s too darn sweet!’ We do this ALL the time.

Alritey! Here’s our easy recipe for Egg Free, Sweetener Free Chocolate Muffins!

  1. Are these moist ? I’m thinking of making them but will have to do them the day before a party
    ( because of travelling), will they still be good on the day do you think ?

  3. These are soooo delicious you guys! I made them with the eggs (rather than with the chia variation) & they were superb. For dark chocolate lovers, these are a definite crowd-pleaser! <3

  5. Hi, for the coconut milk, did you used the canned or carton (e.g. So Delicious etc) variety?

    Thanks…

  8. I just made these and they are delicious! I replaced the cocoa nibs with sunflower seeds and didn’t put the coconut oil in and they still worked perfectly!

  10. I think the diff between cupcakes and muffins is that cupcakes traditionally use butter, whereas muffins use an oil…but who cares – it’s chocolate goodness!! 🙂

  15. I always wanted to ask, on each paleo blog I’ve been. I’ll do it here, because I like you a lot!   Why are you baking almonds? Or other nuts? This is totally against paleo/clean food/health rules. I know, you have a “relaxed paleo” now:) But before you also did it. Thanks!

    Hey Nana 🙂 Defineitly a lot more relaxed now. We use almond meal because it’s a great option. If we wanted to eat a perfect healthy diet we wouldn’t have any sweet treats. No nuts, no sweetener, no ‘paleo breads’ etc. We’d probably just enjoy delicious meat, veg and fruit. But you know what… it’s kinda boring 😛 So that is why we include them and always have!

  17. Sure, kinda boring:) But still, paleo is about health, no? And baked almond and nuts are not only in treats. Sandwich bread, buns, crust etc. Baked nuts are almost as healthy as margarine:) Never could get it.
