Double Chocolate Muffins

These Double Chocolate Muffins are what dreams are made of. If you are living Keto or Paleo and want a sweet treat that taste legit, then this recipe is for you. They are super moist and exploding with a fudge texture and flavor.

Keto Double Chocolate Muffins

The muffins are almost similar to a brownie because of the overall texture. They are perfect for a quick grab and go breakfast, a delectable dessert or even the perfect kid snack or lunchbox option. Additionally, if you have leftovers after a week, you can simply freeze to keep for another 3 months or so.

What if I have a nut allergy. Can I use another flour besides almond?

There are for sure other flours you can use if you have a nut allergy. However, some of the flours I am recommending are not Keto compliant. Be sure to check the tag beside the flour to make sure it aligns with your dietary needs.

Tips for making these Double Chocolate Muffins

  • Don’t overcook. This will dry them out.
  • As far as a Keto and Low Sugar sweetener, I always recommend Monk Fruit. It doesn’t have a yucky after taste like most Keto sugar substitutes.
  • Don’t eyeball your measurements. Make sure to use measuring cups and spoons to get accurate measurement.
  • For low sugar dark chocolate chips, I use Lily’s for Keto and Hu for Paleo.

    I made these tonight for my friends that come over for small group. I used the maple syrup and ghee for ingredients where there was an option. They were a huge hit amongst the adults AND the kids! I don’t often find Paleo baking recipes that I love because of texture, but these could have fooled me for sure. Now I have to go make more because they are already gone.

With school starting, life gets so busy and meal time can be super hectic. I’m here to help with my top favorite Costco finds that will make meal time a breeze! 

✨Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage: Cook with pepper and onions and add over rice or cauliflower rice. Too with my Chili Lime or Mac’s Awesome Sauce for extra flavor

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
