Flourless Chocolate Chip Muffins


There may not be an easier muffin recipe in the world than these flourless sunbutter muffins. There is no flour or flour substitute, you simply whisk the sunflower seed butter in with the eggs and sweetener. You can really use any nut butter or seed butter here, the choice is yours. But if you do go with the sunflower seed butter, make sure you use the vinegar or your muffins may turn green! It’s a funny reaction between the baking powder and the sunflower seeds, and an acid like vinegar or lemon juice helps to prevent it.
