Flourless Brownie Muffins

My family isn’t gluten-free, however we do try to eat a little better now and then. We love our sweets (myself included) but I know that quality whole foods are better for all of us (and our waistlines).

Just a few of the benefits of cutting back on gluten (and flour) include:

  • Better digestive health
  • Lower cholesterol levels
  • Increased energy
  • Decreases other unhealthy ingredients, like oils, found in baked goods
  • More room in your diet for fruits and vegetables

That’s why I love these flourless brownie muffins from Autumn Calabrese.

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (15 oz) drained and rinsed
  • 3 eggs large
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare 12 muffin cups by lining with muffin papers or coating with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place chickpeas, eggs, maple syrup, cocoa powder, baking soda, coconut oil and vanilla extract in blender or food processor; cover. Blend until smooth.
  • Divide batter among 12 prepared muffin cups.
  • Top each cupcake with about four chocolate chips, pushing into batter.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool completely and enjoy!
