Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Muffins (Paleo!)


I’ve been missing chocolate a lot lately. I think it’s because I’m feeling so much better & I know that chocolate isn’t a trigger food for me. What is? Sugar! Major trigger.

I’m not a fan of using sugar substitutes… BUT in scarce moderation, sugar substitutes derived from plants, that don’t spike my insulin are OK. In this recipe I use Erythritol, used in large amounts it can have negative effects on digestion. Large amounts are not used in this recipe, and I do not consume erythritol everyday, so I say GREEN LIGHT! on these chocolicious muffins!

Very brownie like, very rich tasting, very healthy. These muffins work for dessert or breakfast!


Enjoy with dairy free Ice cream or coffee ♥️

    Interesting. Sugar-free, huh? I like your photographer. :-)
    1. Yes, I used a plant based sugar replacement. Out of character for me... but I've been experimenting with alternatives :)
