Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 12-count muffin tin with 12 unbleached muffin liners.
  2. Add wet ingredients to a bowl and stir until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. Add dry ingredients to a bowl, stir until combined. Add to wet ingredients and mix with a spoon until combined.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into prepared, lined, muffin tins. You can go about 85% to the top.
  5. Slide the completed muffin tin into preheated oven and bake for 22-24 minutes, or until tops crack and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. These muffins go from goopy to perfect in a matter of moments in the oven. 22 minutes was the perfect time for me.
  6. Remove from the oven, remove (immediately) from the muffin tray and place on a cooling rack.
  7. Slather with Espresso Fudge Protein Almond Butter or coconut oil.

Notes

Eggs: I have not tried to make this recipe egg-free, however I do think it’s possible. Perhaps starting with replacing the eggs with homemade flax egg is a good starting point. 1 egg = 1 tablespoon finely ground flaxseed combined with 3 tablespoons warm water. Allow to sit for 3 minutes before using in recipe.

Ground Coffee: if you are sensitive to, or do not want to use coffee in this recipe, feel free to omit. I used Bulletproof Decaf Coffee.

Xylitol: if xylitol has hurt your stomach in the past, it’s likely that you were using corn-based xylitol. This birch-sourced xylitol is Non GMO and I’ve never had a problem with it. If you don’t want to use xylitol for this recipe, coconut sugar would work well, too. However, using coconut sugar would increase the carb-count of this recipe.
