I have been doing a lot of grain-free baking because my husband and I have been eating more Paleo to help with his migraines and autoimmune inflammation and my thyroid and adrenal issues. Paleo simply means gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and no refined sugar.

Paleo muffins are a favorite of my family. I have been baking a lot of Paleo muffins in a variety of flavor combinations because they are my husband’s go to for breakfast, snacks, and dessert.

Seriously, I am baking Paleo muffins every other day. My husband and my kids love them and eat them so quickly that they usually don’t last but one day. I love how easy they are to make and that they are a healthier version of your traditional gluten-free muffin. They are made with simple and healthy ingredients like almond flour, no sugar added applesauce and honey.

If you are new to grain-free baking, there are a few differences to traditional gluten-free baking with rice flour. Paleo grain-free baking is different than gluten-free baking, especially the texture. The texture of almond flour is much denser than baking with rice flour. Even though it’s different from your traditional gluten-free baking, it’s a tasty different.

These Paleo chocolate muffins are super easy to make. They are a one-bowl wonder that can be made in less than 40 minutes. They are moist and chocolatey. I don’t feel guilty about eating more than just one of these healthy Paleo chocolate muffins. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I do.


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce (I buy the snack sizes they are 1/2 cup servings and keep them in my pantry for baking.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl add the wet ingredients first (eggs, applesauce, pure vanilla extract, pure almond extract and honey) and stir tother until fully combined.
  3. Then add the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking soda, gluten-free baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder). Mix until fully combined.
  4. Scoop batter into a lined muffin pan. The batter will be thick. (I like to use an ice cream scoop.)
  5. Bake for 23-26 minutes.  Please watch your oven because all ovens are different.
  6. Remove and check centers with a toothpick to see if they are done.
  7. Add chocolate chips to the top of hot muffins (optional).
