Not too sweet, and with the perfect crumb, these easy paleo chocolate chip muffins are great for breakfast, snacks, and a healthy treat! They’re made in the blender, too, so they’re a win for easy cleanup!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Muffins.
I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to make these muffins. I absolutely love chocolate chip cookies, and muffins, so why did I wait until now to blend the two? I guess it doesn’t matter, ’cause they’re here to stay now. Breakfast, snack time, dessert time (which is any time of day, let’s be honest!), these paleo chocolate chip muffins are pretty perfect.
These easy blender muffins are pretty much just my paleo tres leches cupcakes… without the tres leches… and with chocolate chips. The muffins are superbly soft and not fally-aparty. They have a perfect crumb, and they’re not to sweet either!
About the ingredients.
The flour is a wonderful blend of coconut flour, almond flour, and arrowroot powder. While I like to make my own coconut flour, I also love Anthony’s brand. It’s wonderful quality and very affordable. I used that brand for this recipe, but you can use homemade stuff if you have it, just be aware that you might need to alter the amount of coconut flour a bit. Homemade coconut flour isn’t as packed in the bags, so you need a little more of it to get the desired effect.
I also use Anthony’s almond flour, or the stuff from Costco. They’re both great quality!
If you don’t do coconut milk you can sub out almond milk, or really any kind of milk you like. You could probably even use water. Or coffee… I haven’t tried that specifically in these muffins, but there’s no reason it wouldn’t work!
For chocolate chips I like to use my homemade honey-sweetened chocolate chunks. I also use Lily’s chocolate chips. They’re stevia-sweetened, but really don’t taste at all like stevia! They’re kinda pricy, though, so if your cheap (like me) it’s better to just make your own. #diyforthewin
Alternatively, if you don’t handle chocolate very well, you could use my homemade carob chips!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Muffins
Free from grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 3/4 cup coconut flour (I make my own)
- 3/4 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 5 eggs
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (I also make my own)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use my homemade extract)
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips or carob chips (I use my homemade chocolate chunks, or Lily’s chocolate chips)
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 12-count muffin tin or line it with muffin liners.
Put everything but the chocolate chips in a blender and puree until smooth.
Stir in the chocolate chips and let the batter stand for a few minutes so the coconut flour can soak up the liquid.
Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter into prepared muffin tin. (It should fill all 12.).
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until golden-browned and lightly springy.
Remove from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.
I love a good chocolate chip muffin, and the texture is so perfect! Love that it comes together in the blender.
Yes! I love that about this recipe, too. 🙂 Thanks, Jean!
These muffins are so yum and love that they are so easy to make in the blender!
Thanks so much, Tina! I’m so glad you enjoy them, too!
Using the blender makes these so simple to mix up and bake! Nice & fluffy muffins too.
Thanks, Stacey! 🙂 I love using the blender to mix!
So moist and delicious! I love all of the yummy chocolate chips!!
Thanks so much, ChihYu!
These look so delicious! I like muffins that aren’t too sweet. Do you have a favorite store bought coconut flour?
I use Anthony’s brand, from Amazon. If you want something not on Amazon I’ve used the Walmart organic coconut flour and the Arrowhead Mill’s brand, too (also at Walmart). They’re both pretty good. 🙂
They look perfect! I can’t wait to make these paleo muffins.
I hope you enjoy them, Yang!
Can I sub coconut flour for something else?
Hm… I haven’t tried subbing it for anything in this recipe. I would start by just using 1/3 cup more almond flour instead and see how that works. 🙂
