Chocolate & Cherry Muffins

Chocolate & Cherry Muffins

  The combination of sour cherries and rich luxurious chocolate in a healthy muffin almost too good to be true! Bake a batch of these when you’re in the mood of pampering yourself with something so tasty that it should be naughty…   Please note: I’m currently on a Whole30, so the only sweetening in these muffins is the dried sour cherries. As a result, the muffins are not very sweet, but instead rich in chocolate with a sweet burst of sour cherries here and there. If you like your muffins sweeter, add in honey or maple syrup until the sweetness of the batter suits your taste better.   Ingredients: 1/2 cup dried sour cherries 1/3 cup raw cocoa powder 2 bananas 1/3 cup coconut flour 1/3 cup almond flour 1/4 cup coconut cream 4 eggs 1 tbsp cocoa butter 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp natural vanilla extract 1 tsp baking soda Dozen pecan nuts to garnish (Optional: honey or maple syrup to sweeten)   Instructions: Preheat oven to 175C. Mash bananas on the bottom of a bowl. Add whisked eggs, coconut oil, coconut cream, vanilla extract and mix well. Combine dry ingredients (except cherries) in a separate bowl, making sure that cocoa powder and baking soda are both well mixed throughout. Combine all ingredients together. If the dough feels too thick, add a little more coconut cream, until desired consistency. Divide muffin mix into 12 muffin cups and garnish each with a pecan nut half. Bake for 15-26mins, or until done. A good test is to stick in a toothpick – if it comes out perfectly clean, your...
