Keto Chocolate Muffins

Keto chocolate muffins

These are not your average grain-free, sugar-free, keto chocolate muffins! The macadamia nuts elevate this recipe to a whole new level, adding a rich flavour while keeping you satisfied and full.  They also satisfy even the strongest chocolate or carb craving! Extra bonus: this recipe is dairy-free, using coconut oil instead of butter. If you need an easy-to-make snack these are perfect, or they double as a dessert when served with coffee ice cream or vegan vanilla ice cream.
