Chocolate Muffins with Pumpkin and Cranberry

Following the Paleo diet doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t have to eat desserts. Although most of them are made with sugars or other not recommended ingredients, it doesn’t mean we can’t find combinations that are Paleo diet friendly and this recipe we’re making today is a great example of that!

Chocolate Muffins with Pumpkin and Cranberry

Breakdown:

Difficulty: Medium
Feeds: 10 Servings
Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ¾ Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • ¼ Cup Dried Cranberries
  • ¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil Melted
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Raw Honey

Instructions:

First preheat your oven to 350F and spray a muffin tin with coconut oil.

Add all the dry ingredients in a large bowl (Cocoa powder, Almond and Coconut flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice) and mix them together.

In another bowl add the eggs and mix them using a whisker then add pumpkin puree, coconut oil, vanilla and honey. Keep whisking as you add them and when you’re done, add them in the first bowl.

While stirring the compound gently add the cranberries. The mixture is ready to put in the muffin tin and it should be enough for 10 muffin cups. Bake for around 20-25 minutes. To see if the muffins are properly baked, insert a toothpick in them and if it comes out clean, it’s ready. Enjoy and don’t forget to send us some feedback if you tried this one!

Note: While some people might be against chocolate in a Paleo diet, many people agree that it can be included in a more ‘modernized’ diet due to cocoa’s great benefits for the human body.
