Flourless muffins anyone?

There is nothing better than a healthier chocolate snack and I’ve discovered my new favorite one. I wish I tried this recipe earlier! My husband saw it on The Beach Body Blog a while back and suggested that we try these flourless double chocolate muffins. It took me a while to make them, but they are so easy to prepare! And take less than 40 minutes.

I enjoy experimenting with muffin recipes, but there is always flour in them. I’m impressed with how fudgy and delicious these turned!

I try to eat mostly healthy, protein-packed, low-carb meals, but as you know I also indulge in some baked goods and desserts. There have been times, when I try to exclude white flours and refined sugars from my diet for weeks and months, but I’m not ready to give up on them completely! The only thing I can’t give up is – chocolate! No sweet fruit can satisfy my chocolate cravings!

And what I love the most about these muffins is the intense chocolate flavor and fudgy texture. Perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert. Pack them for lunch or make them for a picnic.

I used the recipe from The Beach Body Blog and made just 2 small changes. I peeled the chickpeas, to achieve smoother texture and also used agave nectar instead of maple syrup. Hope you get to try them!
