Chocolaty Berry Muffins Recipe

  • Author: Nele Liivlaid
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 big muffins 1x


Muffins are definitely one of my favourite comfort foods. When I think of muffins I imagine a nice quite afternoon with freshly baked muffin and a bit of high quality speciality coffee I buy from Gourmet Coffee.




  • 15 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 250ml water
  • 1 big banana
  • 90g (about 5 tbsp, 3.17oz) coconut oil
  • 200ml apple sauce



  1. In a small bowl, cover the chopped dates with 250ml water and let soak for at least 15 minutes.
  2. In a big bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, carob powder, and cacao powder.
  3. Place the dates with the soak water, banana, and melted coconut oil into a blender and blend until smooth. Add apple sauce and blend again.
  4. Add this date mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix until all the dry ingredients have disappeared.
  5. Gently fold in the berries. Spoon the batter into a silicone muffin pan or parchment muffin papers in a metal pan. This recipe makes 12 big muffins.
  6. Heat oven to 350 F (175 C). Bake for 30-35 minutes. The muffins will be done when cracks appear, and when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for at least 15 to 20 minutes before removing.
