Chocolate Coconut Muffins (using Coconut Flour)

chocolate coconut muffins, baking using coconut flour
Today I am here with Chocolate Coconut Muffins. These muffins are baked using Coconut flour. I had to bake with coconut oil and I wanted to make it more "Coconut'y". So when I found Coconut flour in the baking aisle of the grocery store, without a second thought, I brought it home. Then I realised coconut flour is much different from the regular flour and it acts differently. I read so many articles on-line and did couple of experiments and finally came up with this recipe. Coconut flour recipes calls for a lot of eggs, I didn't want my muffins to be egg'y, instead I used flaxseed powder mixed with water and used only 2 eggs in this recipe. Also this recipe has coconut oil instead of butter and coconut milk in place of regular milk. The muffins came out so moist and delicious. Our family loves coconut and so I was confident that they will love it and I was right. My kids totally loved it.
