coconut oil spray


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and place your oven rack in the middle of the oven. Line 12 muffin cups with unbleached liners and give a quick spray to each with coconut oil spray.

In a large mixing bowl mix your dry ingredients using a whisk to remove lumps and ensure thorough mixing. in a smaller separate bowl combine your wet ingredients and then pour this into the dry and using a wooden spoon combine the two. Now fold in your chocolate chunks, reserving about 1/4 cup to garnish each muffin before baking. The batter WILL be thick and NOT runny.

Place about 1/4 – 1/3 cup batter into each muffin cup and then top with a sprinkle of chocolate.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let these sit in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Enjoy 🙂
