Flourless Brownie Muffins

CHOCOLATE, anyone?

These dark chocolate flourless brownie muffins are delicious and surprisingly healthy. I make these every once in awhile as a treat for my family and the kids love them! They have NO idea what is in them and I love it! We are gluten free due to some people having allergies in our family, but I also prefer to be low carb in general. I have fond that my body responds better and feels better when I keep my carbs low and my healthy fat high. I try not to eat a lot of beans either, but these are good every once in awhile.

    Hi, Terryn, it looks really yummy. I have a question though, if I want to substitue the chickpeas with almond flour, can you advise me how many cups/grams shoukd I use the almond flour? Thank you in advance for your reply.
