What you need:

  • muffin tray (silicon if you have, otherwise, greased muffin tin)
  • mixing bowl
  • a mixing device (eg a spoon)
  • an oven preheated to 350 F

Ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons softened butter. I used Kerrigold. (Can sub coconut oil)
  • 1/2 cup spoonable stevia (can sub for 1 full cup of white/brown/coconut sugar BUT this is what keeps the recipe so low carb & calorie)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs (can sub flax eggs – just add an extra 1/2 tbsp coconut oil & 1 tbsp flour)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (any low fat milk will work)
  • 1 1/2 cup – 2 cup White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips. I used EnjoyLife semi sweet (a dairy free option).

Method:

  • Microwave or melt butter over hot water until soft
  • Add stevia and mix well
  • Add baking powder, salt, eggs and mix well
  • Add half the almond milk, mix well, add the other half, then mix again
  • Add flour in 1/2 cup intervals, folding in until batter consistency is formed
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups
  • Bake at 350F for 30 min
