Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins

Ever since I cut out wheat and gluten from my diet, baking for others and special occasions (and myself sometimes!) has been challenging to say the least and some results have been outright disastrous. I'm sure anyone who has tried to bake without the traditional cake ingredients you know what I'm talking about!

That's why, when I put this recipe together and found it really worked, I knew I needed to look no further. It contains no gluten, grains or refined sugars, my kids love them (and so does my husband), and if you add a chocolate and creamed coconut icing, they become the perfect birthday cake replacements.


Makes approx. 8-10 medium muffins

120 g butter/coconut oil, melted

6 eggs, whisked

3/4 cup coconut flour

2/3 cup honey/ maple syrup/coconut palm sugar

1/4 cup cacao

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

pinch of salt

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)


1. Heat the oven to 175 C.

2. Melt the butter/coconut oil and leave to cool.

3. In a separate bowl, add the eggs and whisk.

4. Add the remaining ingredients, including the butter/coconut oil, to the bowl and mix until combined.

5. Fill a cupcake tin or moulds, adding a heaped tablespoon of batter to each mould.

6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

7. Enjoy!

I wanted to see someone who I felt knew what they were doing!


I think Jennifer does and I really like her thorough and steady approach. For me further testing has been invaluable in getting my life back in terms of being pretty much able to eat what I want again. It has also helped me to have faith in the supplements I have taken as these are based on those results. Also she is not afraid to tell me I need to take better care of myself, which in turn has helped me to be stronger in focusing on my recovery. I am very grateful to her.
