These healthy three ingredient chocolate muffins are rich, dark, moist and have a gooey centre- Everything you want in a muffin! These flourless muffins are also gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free and have a tested vegan option too!
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.
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.

3 Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Muffins
- 1/2 cup smooth nut butter of choice I used homemade nutella
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder I used standard but tried it with dark and it's AMAZING
- 3 large eggs see notes for tested vegan directions
- 2 tablespoon + granulated sweetener of choice optional
- Melted dairy free chocolate optional
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a muffin tray generously with oil and set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
- Top with melted dairy free chocolate and enjoy. Once heated slightly and halved, they are gooey and almost molten
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.

No fake candy here, that’s just cruel! The melted chocolate on these looks amazing:)
Well the picture of the oozing chocolate isn’t making me drool at all! I really need to eat breakfast before visiting your place because it’s always a drool fest!
Haha thanks so much, Megan! Appreciate it!
I love the gooey melted chocolate on these muffins! You can send a dozen my way! Lol
Coming right up 😀
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!
Hahahaha right? Seriously, team no chocolate….
Thanks so much 🙂
How many muffins does this yield?
i Heather! I got around 7 or 8 standard muffins and around 12 mini muffins 🙂
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!
Oh no!!!!!! That’s kind of funny though! :p
Fav chocolate snack…. gosh why are you making me choose?! Do brownies count as a snack? Healthy chocolate snack brownies. That’s my favorite. XX
They totally do- Especially after the latest chocolate goodness which just came out of my oven. Oops
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
Please do- Ever since making my own, I can never go back to store bought! 🙂
With chocolate, I do discriminate- dark chocolate all the way! These muffins looks amazing! I need to make some homemade Nutella!!
YES! You’ll never go back to standard store bought 🙂
I don’t discriminate either when it comes to chocolate! Blender muffins are the best — so easy and so little clean-up. Love this!
Right? Thanks so much Blair!
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!
OMG!!!!!!!! So my friend in Denmark told me she makes a SACHERTORTE spread…I need to recreate it!
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 🙂
Hahaha thanks so much, Natalie- Appreciate it!
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…
mmm I love animal crackers! Yes! I’m loving sharing minimal ingredient recipes on here!
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? 🙂
Right? Ohhh we have this marbled chocolate in Australia which is milk and dark two toned. SO GOOD!
Perhaps I will join you on Team Greedy….though Team Dark Chocolate is a close runner up. These muffins look scrumptious, Arman. So many options and so delicious!!!
Thanks so much, Allie! 🙂
