  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 whole eggs Or 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites
  • ½ cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup fruit-only raspberry preserves
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract organic

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with muffin liners, or lightly coat silicon muffin tin compartments with coconut oil.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, arrowroot, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil, raspberry preserves and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry and mix until well blended.

  3. Divide batter between muffin cups and bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until mixture is set and a knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Almonds, high in healthy monounsaturated fats, stand in for grains in this decadent dessert.

Antioxidant-rich raspberry preserves take the place of sugar, and add extra nutrition and fiber.
