  • Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tins all the way full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached.
  • Allow to cool in the muffin tins for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Serve warm with almond butter or grass fed butter.

Notes

I like to use Lily's Dark Chocolate or Enjoy Life chocolate chips/chunks!
