Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins

Try these chocolate chip coconut muffins and they will definitely become your all-time favorite dessert! Moist, sweet and nutty-flavored, these coconut muffins are really easy to make! 

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..IChocolate Chip Coconut Muffins crave for baked warm goodies! So today, right before an awful exam, I decided to indulge myself with the cute coconut muffins in the photos below.

Baking + 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 made these vegan but I have to test some good egg substitutes first. Do you know any egg-free muffin recipes? Looking forward to your comments. 🙂

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 110g (½ cup) coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 230g (1 cup) coconut milk, or any other type of milk
  • 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 120g (1 cup) all-purpose flour or use a luten-free flour mix
  • 120g (1 cup) coconut flour
  • 135g (⅔ cups) coconut sugar
  • 10g (2 tsp) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 170g (1 cup) dark chocolate chips
  • 25g (¼ cup) coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare your muffin tin by lining with paper cases and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, vegan milk, and vanilla extract.
  3. In another large bowl whisk together the flours, coconut flakes, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. With a rubber spatula fold the wet ingredients, along with the melted oil, into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined. Do not over mix the batter! A few lumps are ok.
  4. 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.
  5. 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,

searched for a coconut muffin with chocolate chips recipe, and this was perfect! I used the coconut oil and the coconut milk, but normal sugar and flour, and it worked out lovely. This was my first ***ever*** solo baking project, and it went well. your instructions were really nice and clear, although I did panic when I suddenly realised I had to melt the coconut oil. (If you do try to make vegan versions of these, my research into various coconut flour/oil/milk/sugar ingredients said that they really rely on eggs for binding, so you'll need to check that you're compensating for that - but you probably know that stuff already!)

Thank you for the recipe! I hope it's not weird to comment five years after it was posted. Going to feed them to my mother soon as a surprise, she's a great baker! :)
