Flourless Chocolate Mint Muffins
These do have a lot of sweetener in them... They probably aren't low glycemic index... but at least honey is nutritious. No refined sugar here!
FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE MINT MUFFINS
(free of gluten and refined sugar)
2 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
6 large eggs
1 c honey
2/3 c cacao powder
2 tsp baking soda
3/8 c (6 Tbsp) coconut butter, melted
1 tsp pure peppermint extract
Yield: 1 dozen muffins
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease muffin tin. Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Cover and blend until smooth. Carefully pour into muffin tin, dividing batter evenly among the 12 cups. Bake for 12-20 minutes (time varies depending on oven). Look for the center of each muffin to appear dry, or insert a toothpick and see that it comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in muffin tin, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
