How to Make Chocolate Tahini Muffins
These paleo chocolate muffins are really easy to make. All you need is a mixing bowl, whisk, spatula, lined muffin pan (I use silicone muffin liners) and the necessary ingredients.
Here's how to make them:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with silicone muffin liners. Paper liners will work, but they don't fit snug on the muffins after they cool (they tend to fan out).
Next, combine all of the wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk. Add in the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips and whisk until smooth. Lastly, fold the chocolate chips into the batter with a spatula (the batter will be quite thick).
Scoop the muffin batter into the lined muffin pan, filling each slot about ¾ full. This recipe makes approximately 10 muffins.
Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. After baking, remove the muffins from the oven and cool them for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
Store these muffins in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week. If desired, soften them in the microwave for 10 seconds before enjoying.

*For best results, please measure ingredients by weight, when given. Different brands of cassava flour can bake differently. I always use Otto's Cassava Flour in my baking and it's all I recommend. In addition, I have only tested this recipe with cacao powder. Substituting with cocoa powder may change the texture of the muffins.
