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


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk, or any other type of milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour or use a luten-free flour mix
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2/3 cups coconut sugar
  • 10 g baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 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,

@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! :)
