How could you go wrong with muffins that marry the best flavors: orange, honey and chocolate? These are divine with a delicate cup of Café au lait and freshly whipped cream cheese.
Flourless Honey-Orange Chocolate Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups smooth almond butter
- 5 large eggs
- 2/3 cup honey
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- zest from one orange
Preheat the oven 350F. Grease a jumbo muffin pan (or use a regular muffin pan).
Beat together almond butter and eggs with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add in honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, orange zest, salt, and baking soda. Mix well, until mixture is very smooth.
Divide batter into prepared 6-cup muffin pan. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until puffed up and cracked on top. Remove from oven and let cool in pan about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Serve with whipped cream cheese or soft goat cheese. Serve warm with a cup of coffee for breakfast.
