Healthy 1 Minute Double Chocolate Muffin

This healthy double chocolate muffin takes just one minute to make (in the microwave!) or 12 minutes in the toaster oven and is accidentally healthy- Made with no butter, oil, flour or sugar! It’s also suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free, paleo, refined sugar free and dairy free lifestyle!

Guess who is back….in Australia.

I left Los Angeles on Monday afternoon (flying out at 10pm) and arrived in Melbourne at 6.35am…Wednesday morning.

It’s now Friday and it feels SO odd to be back in this time zone. After being close to a year in America, I’d only have had to deal with 2-3 hour time differences the entire time. Now? I can’t even explain it. I go to sleep when the northern hemisphere is just waking up and when I wake up, it’s almost dinner time in New York City.

Anyway, let’s chat about my ridiculous suitcases and the ride over to Australia.

I arrived at LAX with 4 huge suitcases- Each of them was weighed before being checked in, and let’s just say I was hoping they wouldn’t ask me to remove anything….

In kilograms-

32 kg + 27.5 kg + 23 kg + 22 kg = 104.5 kg

In pounds-

70.4 lbs + 60.5 lbs + 50.6 lbs + 48.4 lb = 229.9 lbs

Please don’t judge me. The majority of it was baking goods which are specifically for my cookbook (while we have some brands here, they are at a ridiculous price!) and the rest of it was packed with Oreos and American candies for my mates.

So there.

The service attendant who checked me and my luggage in was kind enough to provide me with a window seat. She advised me that it looked like I had the entire row to myself. I was excited and prepped myself up for a relatively comfortable flight. This, however, was not to be the case. After boarding the plane and finding my seat, I sat back, put my headphones in, then almost shrieked when I saw two people in the seats next to me. 

So much for the whole aisle to myself.

I soon got over it and used the hour we were waiting on the tarmac having a Whatsapp conversation with Juli LITERALLY until we took off. I even sent her photos of the menu we got given. After we had hit the skies, we were served food and let’s just say what was written on the menu was NOT presented to us in person.

The eggs had the texture of rubber and the bacon could have been used as a hair tie. As for the ‘dinner’, let’s just say the beef should have been called mystery meat instead. The saving grace was the dessert, which I didn’t even plan on enjoying- A strawberry shortcake. Typically, the desserts on airplanes have typically been absolute fail whales and are frozen solid. This, however, actually had a strawberry on top. Anyway, after my dessert, I (luckily) passed out (THANK YOU, Melatonin) and woke up with mere hours before I would be greeted by Niki with a frown on her face. 

🙂 

Anyway, during the flight, I used a couple of my waking hours to edit some photos of a recipe I shot late last week- A snack I’d been enjoying almost daily in the hopes of using up leftover bits of grain free flours. I had a few spoons of coconut flour and even almond flour on hand so of course, transformed them into a delicious sweet treat which I share with you today- This healthy one minute double chocolate muffin!

This healthy double chocolate muffin is light and fluffy on the inside yet tender on the outside, similar to bakery style muffin, without all the sugar, flour, oil and butter typically found in them! This delicious, single-serve treat also takes just ONE minute to make (in the microwave) or around 12 minutes when baked in a toaster or conventional oven! It’s also deceptively filling and suitable for those following a paleo, vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free lifestyle! 

HACK! While the first few muffins I made used these chocolate chunks and these chocolate chips, I also made a couple using half a leftover Green and Black’s dark chocolate bar. When chopped into rough pieces, it melted beautifully throughout. Those who aren’t held back by dietary restrictions or don’t have baking chips on you, simply chop up a good quality chocolate bar and voila- You’re covered…in chocolate.

Make this healthy 1 minute double chocolate muffin and don’t let the time difference sway you from coming to Australia.

I’ll be waiting…with Oreos, Hugh Jackman and a smile on my face.

Ingredients
  1. 1 T almond flour
  2. 1 1/2 T coconut flour, sifted
  3. 1 T cocoa powder
  4. 1- T granulated sweetener of choice (I used a monk fruit blend)*
  5. pinch vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 large egg or egg white (sub for 1 flax egg to keep it vegan)
  8. 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice**
  9. 1 T chocolate chunks of choice
  10. 1 T chocolate chips of choice
For the microwave option
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  2. In a separate small bowl, combine the dairy free milk with the egg (or flax egg) and whisk with the vanilla extract. Add the mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined. If batter is still crumbly, continue adding dairy free milk one tablespoon at a time, until a thick batter is formed. Stir through the chocolate chunks and chips, reserving a few for the top.
  3. Grease a microwave or oven safe bowl and generously and pour the batter. Top with more chocolate chips and microwave for 50-60 seconds, depending on the microwave.
  4. Enjoy immediately.
For the oven option
  1. Follow as above but bake in a preheated oven (350 degrees) for up to 12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Notes
  1. * Adjust sweetness to taste. I found one tablespoon sufficient.
  2. ** Depending on the brand of coconut flour, almond flour and cocoa powder you use, you may need more. Adjust accordingly.

  1. I hope you have a great time back in Australia! One day I’ll get there. The last time I was on an airplane I was super surprised that 1. I actually got any sort of food and 2. It was actually real food. I could tell what everything was. It was pretty shocking to say the least. It’s said its not always like that!

  2. Wait! You’re friends with Hugh Jackman? You never told me that! I’m annoyed now. It sounds like you had a decent trip over since you slept the whole way…and you’re actually probably asleep right now as I leave this comment. Geez, Arman, wake up once in a while? Hope you have an epic trip and eat lots of Marmite. Maybe a Healthy 1-minute Double Marmite Muffin is up next? When are you coming back?

  3. Glad you had a safe trip and good luck with starting all your recipes for the cookbook- so excited to hear more! Pinning this for the next time I have a serious chocolate craving 🙂

  4. Wow! I only travel with one bag, and I usually have to pay excess baggage charges on that as some airlines over here don’t even allow you to select an option for more than 23kg (my bag is about 28-29). Did you book it in advance or did you pay on the day? (Sorry for such a technical, non-food related question, but this really interests me!)

    1. That’s okay! I paid one in advance then paid an overweight fee for another one at the airport- If you book in advance, it’s cheaper. Because of my work, I knew I would be bringing back more so was prepared!

  5. Ah, plane food. Gotta love the inedibleness of it 😉 glad you had a safe flight! And I can totally feel you on the time zone thing. I’m sleeping in even though it’s been a week since I’ve left NYC. UGH. But this muffin looks better and probably tastes better than that strawberry shortcake for sure!

  6. Our conversation definitely didn’t make me mind being sick at home so much anymore 🙂
    The best food I ever had on a plane was a real and warm pain au chocolat with fresh actually drinkable coffee on an Air France flight.
    P.S. Melatonin is the only thing that gets me off my jetlag in a reasonable time.

  7. Yay you are back! I realised when I saw one of your snap chats in woollies… I bet you wish it was trader joes…
    We were so lucky flying with Emirates over here… The food was fab, even the GF stuff… I was pretty surprised as I expected it to be pretty bland.
    The time change over to Melbourne is going to confuse me… It will be the first time I have stayed in the same country but had to change the time. Can’t wait though 🙂

  8. Hi. I just found out about your site and it is quite amazing. I want to start doing your recipes.I have some questions. Only 1 muffin I can make from this? If I want more I just have to multiply the ingredients. Can I use sillicon shapes to pus in the muffin dough? Thank you so much 🙂

  9. Hi Arman! This was my first try ever at a mug cake/muffin. It was very moist, filling and I enjoyed it I’m going to try the banana oat one next. 🙂

  10. Hi! Can you go with one flour or the other or must you use both with their respective measurements? I’m excited (sadly, SUPER excited!) about this and can’t wait to bring it into my gluten-free nightmare!

  11. This was so good! Ive tried so many of these freakin things and this one actually tasted good. I felt like it needed a pinch of salt and I may or may not have added some Peanutbutter!
