Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins | Briose cu ciocolata si cocos

Sharing is caring!

Oh yum! Since this stressful period began I started to have these huge sweet cravings; it’s like my brain needs fuel or something. No raw, healthy desserts or delicious fruits can satisfy my cravings..oh no..I crave for baked warm goodies! So today, right before an awful exam, I decided to indulge myself with the cute ones in the photo above.

Bake + chocolate = Love, right?! You’ll definitely love this coconut muffins recipe. I added some coconut flakes to make them taste even better! These are super chocolate chip coconut muffins…I named them Coco-choco Muffins! Ha! I think all that sweetness went straight to my brain :))

I wish I had some healthy flour or make a vegan recipe but you can substitute some of the ingredients and make it healthier. Do you know any egg-free muffin recipes? What types of healthy flours can I use? Looking forward to your comments :)

Ingredients for 12 muffins:

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or any other type of milk)
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour(or use a healthy gluten-free flour; Unfortunately this was the only type of flour I had)
  • 2/3 cups sucanat
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare your muffin tin by lining with paper cases and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, vegan milk, and vanilla extract.

In another large bowl whisk together the flour, sucanat baking powder, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. With a rubber spatula fold the wet ingredients, along with the melted butter, into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined. Do not over mix the batter! A few lumps are ok.

Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter, using two spoons /muffin. Place in the oven and bake for about 18 – 20 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick; When they’re ready to come out, the toothpick will remain dry.

Let the muffins sit in the tin for 1-2 minutes after you take them out of the oven, place them on a cooling rack for 10 minutes and then serve still warm, yumm!

  1. thank you for sharing your recipe, my creation/adaptation turned out lovely. i especially enjoyed the addition of coconut flakes.

  2. @city : Thank you! I'm glad you like it :)

  3. nice idea thanks for sharing

  4. @Disco Mom:

    I can't tell you from where you can buy the coconut butter. I live in Romania and I buy it from Organic stores. I'm sure that you can also buy it online but unfortunately I only know Romanian websites.

    About the muffins:

    1. I use a slightly taller-than normal muffin tin. I bought it from Ikea. Maybe this is one reason why the muffins have a taller bottom.

    2. When preparing the mixture for your muffins be careful not to over mix the ingredients in order to get fluffy, tall muffins. Simply fold the ingredients together. Don't worry about a few lumps.

    3. Start with ingredients at room temperature (milk, eggs…)

    4. Allow muffins to cool in the pan at least 10 minutes before removing them; if you remove them too fast they may deflate.

    Anyways don't worry; practice makes perfect :) This is the third time I make muffins and the only time they actually looked good :). I'm still not that sure if the fourth time they will look good also. It's not a very easy recipe and I'm not very good at baking.

    Try following the tips above and let me know if they worked! :)


  5. @Magic of Spice: Thank you!:)

  6. Hi – these look amazing. Tell me more about coconut butter – what the heck and where can I get some? I'm sure I can find a million uses for it. Also, I'm obsessed with getting my muffins tall like these – not just the rise on top but a nice tall bottom. What pan do you have, or is it the fancy liners that make the base so nice and tall? Mine seem so shrimpy. I'm going crazy with this issue – please help! THanks :)

  7. Beautiful looking muffins and love all of those chips!

  8. @Purabi Naha: Thank you! Btw I love your blog! I'm a HUGE fan of Indian recipes :)

  9. I loved this recipe! The measurements seem to be very good and these muffins are right down my alley!

  10. @Jesica: Thanks! I'm a huge chocolate fan! The more the merrier :))

  11. @Foodepix: Thanks for the invite. Love the website!

  12. Thanks Angie!
    You can substitute coconut butter with any other oil you like and of course if you are not vegan you can use regular butter.
    I prefer coconut butter because it has a subtle nutty flavor that I love. Be sure to buy unrefined cold-pressed coconut butter, it is the best :)

  13. i love how you don't skimp on the chocolate chips and that addition of coconut is just divine!

  14. Looks delicious. Would love for you to share this with us over at

  15. Gorgeous muffins! I have to get some coconut butter.
