I feel like chocolate is so stereotypical, mostly with women. Women tend to “crave” chocolate, and I always hear them saying how they can’t live without it.
Me? Eh. I could live without it. Sorry.
I’d much rather have a spoon and a jar of peanut butter…to the face.
Or in this case, almond butter.
Chocolate did sound good though, so I combined that with the almond butter and some cherries to give it a fruity kick.
Every time I have made muffins in the past, half of the dang muffin ended up sticking to the pan. It. Never. Failed. So I decided to buy cupcake liners, and why the heck haven’t I done this in the past?! They’re much easier to take on-the-go, too.
- 1/2 C. applesauce
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 Tbs. ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 10 drops cherry stevia (optional)
- Powdered stevia
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1/2 C. almond milk
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 C. coconut flour
- 1/4 C. almond flour
- 2 Tbs. almond butter
- 2 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 scoop (25g) chocolate protein powder
- 1/3 C. cherries
- 1/4 C. chopped almonds
Mix the first set of ingredients together and mix well. Then mix the next set of ingredients. Place about a spoonful of batter into cupcake liners – highly recommended, or they will stick. Top with a raw almond in the middle (optional).
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Makes 11 muffins.
