  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce I buy the snack sizes they are 1/2 cup servings and keep them in my pantry for baking.
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon  of pure vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl add the wet ingredients first (eggs, applesauce, pure vanilla extract, pure almond extract and honey) and stir tother until fully combined.
  • Then add the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking soda, gluten-free baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder). Mix until fully combined.
  • Scoop batter into a lined muffin pan. The batter will be thick. (I like to use an ice cream scoop.)
  • Bake for 23-26 minutes.  Please watch your oven because all ovens are different.
  • Remove and check centers with a toothpick to see if they are done.
  • Add chocolate chips to the top of hot muffins (optional).
