Mocha Fudge Muffins

These Mocha Fudge Muffins are a decadent, yet healthy way to start a day! These  paleo muffins are rich and chocolate-y and give you just the right amount of coffee buzz to get your day going. They are a gluten-free treat you can feel good about eating with no white flour and no refined sugar and with packed healthy fats! Make these for the holidays, a weekend brunch or for a more delicious weekday morning and you won’t be disappointed.

These muffins have the perfect texture. I love using almond flour as the base for my muffin recipes because they make the best gluten-free muffins without needing to add a lot of other fussy ingredients. Adding the cocoa powder to these combines to create a fluffy and light muffin that is still able to hold up the fudge filling.  Plus, they’re a breeze to make!

    Recipe Notes

    We like to melt chocolate using a double boiler. Here is how you do that:

    1. Add 1” of water to a medium saucepan or pot and bring to a very gentle simmer.
    2. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot so that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water.
    3. Add the chopped chocolate to the bowl and stir occasionally with a spatula until smooth and melted.
