the adventures of a MAD mom

When I made these tonight, Casey said,  “mom, I never thought I could have anything that tasted this good on my diet”.  All I have to say is, that is worth any effort I put into making them.  I am sure the full cup of butter did not hurt, but you could substitute 1/2 c. coconut oil for 1/2 of the butter to make them a bit healthier.  They make a great, quick and travel friendly snack.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

6 eggs

1 c. unsalted butter, melted

2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted in double boiler or microwave

pure stevia – 16 scoops (we buy the Trader Joe’s brand.  1 scoop = 1 tsp. equivalent)*

2/3 c. coconut flour (we use Coconut Secret raw coconut flour)

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

8 Tbsp. water

Beat eggs.  Add in stevia and salt.  slowly add in butter in a thin stream so as not to cook the eggs.  Mix in melted chocolate.

In another bowl, mix dry ingredients together.  Sift into egg mixture.  Mix well and add in water until batter consistency (coconut flour absorbs a lot of water).

Let sit for 5-10 minutes. This helps the rising process.

Pour into mini muffin pan (you can also use standard size muffins, but must alter the baking time).  Bake for 12 minutes.

Recipe makes approximately 30 mini muffins.  Our muffins have .75 cbs./each , but be sure to calculate yours using your own ingredients. Coconut flour carbs vary greatly from brand to brand.

*there have been a lot of comments about this measurement.  I buy the Trader Joes pure stevia.  Make sure there are no additives in the stevia you are using.  A tiny tiny bit = a teaspoon equivalent.  When you purchase the sweetener of your choice, there should be a teaspoon equivalent (ie: 1 drop = 1 teaspoon, or one scoop = 1 teaspoon). Go by this measurement, and use 16 of whatever that equivalent is (ie: 16 drops, 16 scoops, 16 teaspoons, etc…).  You may choose to use Splenda instead – Casey cannot tolerate it, but then you would go by their teaspoon equivalent.

If this is not clear, please let me know because it probably means it is not clear to others. Thanks!
