This Halloween, don’t worry about the sugar intake, as sweets and candy are the favourite treat to receive. Chef Foa has prepared for you a super simple and healthy muffin recipe, that you can make along with your children and decorate it as spooky as you‘d like. Check it out below.
Cocoa Muffins with Pumpkin Filling
- 150 gr almond flour
- 50 gr cocoa powder
- 150 gr maple syrup
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- baked pumpkin (butternut squash)
- dried apples
- anything else that you family would enjoy :)
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C, or about 370 Fahrenheit. In a big bowl, start mixing the almond flour, cocoa powder and maple syrup together until well combined. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix them until you get a fine batter. Pour the batter in a prepared muffin tin and add a chunk of baked pumpkin in the middle for a spooky surprise element. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until the cake tester comes out clean.
