These delicious chocolate broccoli muffins are a great way to sneak some extra vegetables into children – I promise they won’t notice. I have tried this recipe on my own children and they are yet to realise! Give it a try and let me know what you think…
75ml olive oil
100g Xylitol total sweet (or you could use brown sugar)
150g plain flour (I used gluten free)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tbsp dark or raw cocoa powder
1 cup steamed broccoli (about 100g)
50g dark chocolate chips
1) Mix the eggs, oil and xylitol in a food processor or bowl until frothy.
2) Add the flour, baking powder and cocoa. If using food processor, add steamed broccoli straight in and blitz. If mixing by hand, mash or finely chop the broccoli first. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
3) Spoon into 12 muffin cases in a muffin tray, then bake at 180C for about 12 to 15 minutes, until set and springy. Leave to cool.
