I actually think my teeth are greedy.

Most people I’ve spoken to are usually one of several teams-

Team Milk Chocolate.

Team Dark Chocolate.

Team White Chocolate.

Team ‘I don’t like chocolate.’ 

I, however, am on team greedy and proud of it.

When it comes to chocolate, I don’t discriminate. White chocolate chips, dark chocolate chunks and dairy free milk chocolate morsels are all common ingredients in many of my recipes. I love white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, dark chocolate cakes and well….this recipe is living proof that all forms can co-exist together….until I eat it.

The only exception to this is decoration chocolate- Chocolate which is probably from the 1980’s that my mum keeps in a display unit NOT purposed for eating. Niki and I didn’t get that memo and let’s just say we had a very sinister taste in our mouths.

Oops.

Dark chocolate has suddenly resurfaced in my life and I don’t mind one bit. Long term readers know I’ve become slightly obsessed with this dark cocoa powder and have been adding it into anything and everything (within reasons….sort of). While I’m certainly not one to pick and choose the complexion of my chocolate, I have come to appreciate all things dark, especially after a recent dessert down up in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. It was a dark chocolate molten cake and was rich, decadent and the perfect amount of bitterness. I asked the waiter if any sugar had been added and he said they hadn’t which had my wheels turning in my head…

As part of my collaboration with Kohl’s, I’m sharing healthy recipes with simple ingredients and minimal prep for you all to enjoy. This one goes out to anyone who loves chocolate and the ingredients are all easy to access and (if you’re anything like me!), sitting in your pantry or kitchen table right this second. The best bit is all you need to do is whip it up in a blender (like this one) and voila- No prep at all. Enter- these healthy three ingredient flourless chocolate muffins

These healthy three ingredient flourless chocolate muffins are the perfect rich, dark cocoa fix you need and take barely any time to whip up! Unlike traditional bakery style muffins, these have no flour, butter, oil or sugar which might seem slightly off but trust me- If you are a dark chocolate lover, you will be a fan! They are naturally gluten free, paleo, dairy free and sugar free. For my vegan friends, these DO work using a flax egg, however will be quite limp and will need to be removed from the oven slightly earlier. I’d also recommend you DO add sweetener if you go this route. 

HACK! These muffins have no added sugar whatsoever or are very rich, dark and robust tasting. If you want a sweet muffin or prefer some sweetness, add 2 tablespoons or more of your favorite granulated sweetener and take out the muffins 2 or so minutes earlier.

Make these healthy three ingredient flourless chocolate muffins and embrace whichever team of chocolate your on.

Except team decoration.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup smooth nut butter of choice (I used homemade nutella)
  2. 1/4 cup cocoa powder (I used standard but tried it with dark and it's AMAZING)
  3. 3 large eggs (see notes for tested vegan directions)
  4. 2 T + granulated sweetener of choice (optional)
  5. Melted dairy free chocolate (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a muffin tray generously with oil and set aside.
  2. In a high speed blender, food processor or even by hand, mix together your nut butter, cocoa powder and eggs (or flax egg mixure) until thick and fully incorporated. Add granulated sweetener of choice if desired.
  3. Pour mixture to fill each muffin tin to the top (there is no baking powder so they won't rise much) and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until just cooked in the centre- You want it to still be very moist, almost undercooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan completely.
  4. Top with melted dairy free chocolate and enjoy. Once heated slightly and halved, they are gooey and almost molten
Notes
  1. For the vegan option, use the equivalent of 3 flax eggs (3 T flax and 9 T water, allowed to sit for around 15 minutes in the fridge to gel up). The vegan version should be cooked less so keep an eye on it.
  2. Once heated slightly and halved, they are gooey and almost molten in the centre. They are best eaten this way. Muffins are freezer friendly and best kept refrigerated.

  1. I pretty much love any kind of chocolate, but if I had to pick, it would be milk chocolate. I have a team dark chocolate and a team no chocolate here too (not sure where the no chocolate kid came from, lol). I think these muffins should be breakfast this morning…do you send special deliveries? They look AMAZING!

  2. Team greedy all the way!

    First brownies, now muffins… chocolate heaven!
    I once almoste bit in a wax apple. A basket of wax apples next to a basket of real apples is not cool!

  3. Dear Arman, I love that these are flourless. That means they are more rich and fudgier! You had me at nutella. especially homemade! I must make my own…these muffins would be a hit with everyone in the house. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful day my friend, Catherine

  4. OMG these look amazing!!! I hated white chocolate until I arrived in Croatia and discovered this amazing white chocolate spread they do here. Now I don’t discriminate!

  5. Ummmm I need to stop looking at your posts first thing in the morning! They make me SUPER hungry throughout the day because your recipes are so darn delicious 🙂

  6. My favorite chocolate snack at the moment are chocoalte animal crackers. If you dip them in nutella, they become ever better. I love recipes with few ingredients so I am totally on board with these! My parents knew never to put out fake food, because we would eat them and probably not notice. We ate everything and just moved on =P I’m not sure that’s a good thing…

  7. Who in the world would be on Team No Chocolate? They might as well be on Team No Fun! I used to be a proud member of only Team Milk Chocolate, but then I discovered the wonders of dark chocolate. And now I am a starter for both teams. Hey, I gotta share the love, right? 🙂

  8. My mother-in-law gave me a candy jar filled with bright pink imitation candy that I tasted , only to find it’s soap. Yuk.

  9. Molten chocolate cakes – that was my first thought upon seeing those pictures. And that’s one good impression. Very good.
    Your comment on the decorative chocolate reminded me of when a friend gifted me and a few other friends with homemade candles adorned with Gingerbread ornaments. One friend tried to eat hers …. fail ;).

  10. I’m team white chocolate because it’s really butter and cream, although I kind of love all the chocolate. In fact, I just melted some semi-sweet with dark to pair with raspberries and it was amazing.

  11. I like to A) mix cacao/cocoa and Stevia in Greek yogurt, B) have a piece of dark chocolate, or C) have a piece of dark chocolate on a spoonful of peanut butter! HEHEHE! On the occasion, I do make healthy chocolate recipes! Will try this one as well!

  12. These look so delicious and easy but super high fat! Low carb is good but I hate how a lot of low carb recipes end up being high in fat. The nut better and eggs aren’t BAD sources of fat but there’s still a limit to how much I can consume!

    I might try to use egg whites in these and let you know how it turns out! Love your blog – you have some great dessert recipes. I think several of them are on my pinterest.

  13. These look great but from the pics it looks like you also added chocolate chips. If so which kind did you use?

  14. I was thinking about using applesauce to replace the egg. I’m all out of flax! Would that work? I read that applesauce is one of the vegan egg replacers. Thank you

  15. Greetings! Do you have a place on yr website where I can see a link or get the details of the type of loaf pans, muffins tins, etc, that you use? Your recipes are so great. Oh, do you detail this info in your cookbook, for sugar=free recipes?
