We love a grain free treat around here, but due to health problems, are also trying to reduce all added sugars from our diet—even the wholesome ones, like raw honey.

These grain free, coconut flour chocolate muffins can be sweetened mostly with stevia, so they help you get your chocolate fix with a bare minimum of added sugar.

And with one egg per muffin, coconut oil and fresh nut butter, these muffins are relatively nutritious too.
