Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • cups monk fruit granular
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil measured solid then melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sugar free chocolate chips plus more for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F, and line a muffin tray with 8 muffin wrappers or grease with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • Divide eggs from yolks. Take a medium-size bowl and mix the egg yolks with oil, granulated sweetener, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt. The mixture will be crumbly.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form a meringue. To know if the meringue is ready, turn the bowl upside down; it should fall or move at all.
  • Transfer ½ of the meringue into the crumbly mixture and gently mix. Then, fold in the rest until well combined.
  • Next, fold in the chocolate chips and stir to combine. Then, divide the batter into eight muffin tins.
  • Finally, bake the muffins for 25 to 27 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the top is nicely brownish.
  • Allow to cool in the muffin tray before serving.

Notes

To store: Keep leftovers over the counter for up to three days or in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
To store in the freezer: Place cooled  chocolate chip muffins in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.
