Flourless Chocolate Muffins

If you follow a gluten-free or a Paleo diet, or if you simply like lighter desserts, flourless chocolate muffins are a must. Full of chocolate goodness without the grains, these muffins are heavenly! I like my cake separate and my chocolate separate: I guess it explains why I don’t post too many chocolate cake recipes here. These muffins feel lighter than your regular muffins, but their intense chocolate smell and flavor makes up for their lack of “cake-ness.”

This recipe asks for almond flour. Make sure you are using precisely that and not just ground up almonds or almond milk leftovers. Cocoa powder has to be raw and unsweetened: it tastes more “chocolatey” this way, without adding on to sugar content of the recipe.
