RECIPE - No Added Sugar Choccyliscious Muffins


Sometimes you just want something gorgeous and CHOCOLATE right?
Well as many of my facebook followers would know this year I am really cutting back on SUGAR. But I still love to eat and cook and love baking and of course my choccy fix.
I also like to give my kids "treats" that are not full of junk, numbers and sugar.

These muffins really are super moist and melt in your mouth.

Enjoy! XX
Ingredients
  • 1 cup dates (check packet to make sure no added sugar or anything nasty), soak overnight, covered or for at least 3 hours in enough water to just cover them.
  • 1 cup natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup Planet Organic Natural Cocoa
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1/4 cup Natvia Stevia powder
  • 10 drops liquid stevia in chocolate
  • A couple of drops pure vanilla or vanilla stevia drops
  • 1 & 1/2 cups wholemeal SR flour
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts
  • 1 Sweet William No Added Sugar chocolate bar, chopped

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 180'c.
  • Line a muffin tray with muffin cases.
  • In a bowl use a hand mixer to combine butter, stevia drops, stevia powder.
  • Best in egg.
  • Mix in the cocoa powder.
  • Add in the yoghurt, make sure mixed through and then drain and add in the dates.
  • Very carefully add in  the flour until just combined.
  • Spoon mixture into muffin cases.
  • Top each one with some walnuts and chopped chocolate.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until muffins are golden on top and bounce back from your touch.
  • Allow to cool on wire racks.
  • Serve.
Notes
  • Stevia can be swapped for honey.
  • Mix chocolate and walnuts carefully through mixture before adding flour for flavour hits through the muffins as well.
  • Get a big chocolate hit by serving with a mug of hot chocolate made with Planet Organic natural cocoa and stevia to sweeten.
  • Freezable.
  • Great for school lunches.
  • Can be made gluten free with a gluten free flour, you may need to adapt recipe though, possibly include another egg etc.
Toddler Tips

  • Use a miniature muffin tray to make toddler friendly sized ones.
