Chocolate Coconut Almond Muffins

February 3, 2010

Chocolate Coconut Almond Muffins

I like these muffins a lot.  Though I wouldn’t go so far as to call them healthy, they do contain unsweetened coconut, coconut milk and almonds, all of which are healthy and filling.  These muffins whip up quickly and bake quickly, too, so you can have them out of the oven in about 30 minutes from the time you start.  Since they are not overly sweet, they work for breakfast in a pinch.

You can use canned coconut milk in this recipe, or you can use reconstituted powdered coconut milk, which I have recently discovered as a more affordable and satisfactory substitute.

Chocolate Coconut Almond Muffins

  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup liquid fat (I’ve used melted butter, melted coconut oil and olive oil all with good results, though coconut oil is my favorite)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Grease muffin tins or place muffin papers in tins.

Place flours, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and sugar in a large bowl and whisk together.  Add wet ingredients.  Mix just until incorporated.  Gently stir in almonds, oats and coconut.

Spoon into muffin tins, filling each 2/3 of the way.  Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark and springy.

Yield:  24 muffins

    Search engine optimizing your site is a must if you want
    to be competitive. People these days rely on search engines for discovering
    essential information, shopping for products and services
    and finding new providers of those products and services.
    Read on to find out how to get your site to the top of
    the search engine rankings. You have to give keyword density some attention when optimizing pages for the search engines.
    Ideally, your page’s overall keyword density should be at 20% or less.

    There is no sense in optimizing your site for “hooded sweatshirts” if
    your target market calls them “hoodies.” You simply must know what words people are actually using, not what you think they use.
    One invaluable tool in your quest is Google Insights, which will show you, in incredible detail, patterns of Google searches,
    either globally or by country, stretching back to 2004.

    Get a solid handle on the words people ACTUALLY use to find what they’re looking for and
    you can have confidence in the keywords that you
    choose for SEO.

    ago? Any sure?

    Everything composed was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you typed a catchier post title? I am not saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added a post
    title that makes people want more? I mean Chocolate Coconut Almond Muffins | Tardy Homemaker is kinda vanilla.

    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links.

    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little
    livelier.
