Triple Chocolate Muffins

Share it Please
If you've been around for a while, you can obviously tell that I post a lot of breakfast recipes. Specifically muffin recipes. And that's okay, right? Because, let's face it, a lot of us struggle with what to make for breakfast. It's a constant battle at my house. What does one do when they tire of eggs and sausage? That's the million dollar question, isn't it?

Well now I have another breakfast suggestion for you. Trip chocolate muffins! With three different kinds of chocolate their nearly irresistible. Especially when I tell you that these muffins are a good source of protein and fiber. Eat them along with a breakfast scramble or hash and you have the perfect morning meal to keep you going until lunch. 

My grandmother had given my younger sister a recipe for double chocolate muffins a while back and a couple weeks ago my sister finally got to baking them. I wasn't able to try them due to the fact that they were full of gluten and sugar, but now I have this version and it definitely satisfies. You could even turn them into dessert by frosting them with chocolate or vanilla frosting.

On a side note, I got three teeth pulled yesterday. Suffice to say, my mouth was in a lot of pain. It's better today, but the big gaping holes in my mouth are still tender when I use them to chew or I brush my teeth. This creates a problem, because I love salad and nuts and all other crunchy objects. But right now I can't eat them. Salads and raw veggies are a big part of how I get my vegetables in for the day. Yesterday I don't think I had any and today I had a little bit of cooked cauliflower, which still hurt to eat. Any suggestions for how to get my veggies in that doesn't require much chewing?

Wow. That was really off topic. I apologize. I'll just let you get to your muffins.

2 1/2 c. almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
3 eggs
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
1/4-1/2 tsp. liquid stevia or try 1 ripe banana, mashed (I haven't tried this yet, so, if you do, let me know how they turned out)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. dark chocolate chips
1/3 c. white chocolate chips (or sub with more chocolate chips)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
2. In a smaller bowl, beat together the eggs, honey, coconut oil, stevia, and vanilla.
3. Stir the wet ingredients in with the dry until thoroughly combined.
4. Add the chocolate chips.
5. Line a muffin tin with paper lines or grease well. Scoop scant 1/4 c. into each muffin tin.
6. Bake for 13-17 minutes. When toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, muffins are done.

Inquiry of the Day:

Have you ever gotten any teeth pulled? Or had any cavities? I've been lucky and haven't had any cavities. But I did have braces a couple years ago. It was only for a year, so I was really grateful for that.

    These muffins look really good! And I bet they taste even better. ;) Just this summer I got two teeth pulled out. I didn't have much pain, but I had a lot of numbness, and my upper lip was really swollen. It was really uncomfortable, I couldn't even drink water right. And even though it only lasted about 5 hours, it felt like forever. In the meantime, all I ate was some tuna; I just wasn't able to eat more.

    And, if you want to eat veggies, I would suggest eating them all cooked until you feel better. You could try them puréed/mashed too. My favorite cooked vegetable is broccoli. I also tried it as "broccoli soup" once, and it was really good, but it wasn't so healthy. :-/ The broccoli loses most of its properties on the way.

    Man, this got way too long... Sorry. I think I talk too much. LOL. :)

    1. Thanks!

      And I appreciate all the advice. Thankfully my mouth is feeling better (yay!), but it's still hard to eat some things, like salads and raw nuts.

      Also, I don't think you talk to much :)

  2. You could definitely persuade me with chocolate muffins for breakfast.

    I hope you're feeling better. I've had quite a few teeth taken out, a few before I had braces and a wisdom tooth, and it is really painful. I looked like a hamster for days and lived off soup.

    1. I am, although it took a few days for my mouth to feel back to normal again. Thanks for the concern, though. :)

    I know how it feels. Just a few months ago, I had to have a whopping 7 teeth pulled so that I could get my braces in. As for vegetables, you can pretty easily put them into dishes, and you don't always have to taste them to still have them. I've heard of people putting cauliflower in mashed potatoes before. And at one point, my mom made a batch of brownies, and after they were long gone, I found out she had put beets in them. So you can always test out sone dish/veggie combos to see what does and doesn't work. (Sorry for a long explanation; I sometimes tend to over describe things a little bit. :))

    1. Wow. That's a lot of teeth! I've eaten cauliflower mashed potatoes and I like them a lot. But I don't think I've ever put beets in brownies before, hmm.... I'll have to try that! Thanks for the advice

  4. Ooo these look delicious & like a lovely treat!
