How to make Chocolate Chip Muffins Healthy?
Buying and using Organic ingredients whenever possible is a good way to start.
Lower the amount of sugar in your muffins and try to stick with unrefined sugars.
These are just two easy tips that you could actually apply to lots of recipes.
Substitutions or other Add-ins:
If you don’t need this to be dairy free you can easily swap butter for the coconut oil or dairy milk for the coconut milk.
Can use another nut butter in place of almond…. such as cashew, peanut butter, or sunflower butter.
Some add-ins: nuts… walnuts, pecans or almonds
Or even EXTRA chocolate chips if you want more chocolatey flavor.
Can I freeze these muffins?
Yes.. they can easily be kept longer by freezing them. Just make sure to put them in a freezer safe bag and they should keep for several months.
So doubling the batch and freezing some for later can be a great idea for meal prep.
Recipe tips and baking with Coconut Flour:
Use room temperature eggs- if you forgot to take them out of the fridge you can always set them in a bowl of warm water to take the chill off.
If using coconut milk and it clumps together…. pour it through a mess strainer to remove clumps.
Melt the coconut oil first so it has time to cool slightly before adding to the batter.
Let the batter sit for a minute after stirring since coconut flour tends to absorb lots of liquid…
You can always add a little more milk if necessary.
