Chocolate Cassava Muffins

I have a recipe for Cinnamon Cassava Muffins that I love, and they are basically a vanilla cassava muffin…so, I figured it was only appropriate to have a chocolate recipe as well.

Unlike the vanilla version, these Chocolate Cassava Muffins only require one bowl (no food processor necessary) because they are sweetened with monk fruit, rather than dates.ย  If you don’t have, or want to use monk fruit sweetener then substituting with coconut sugar is a great alternative.

This Paleo-friendly chocolate muffin recipe makes 8 fluffy, lightly sweetened muffins using just 8 simple ingredients and they are free of: grains, gluten, dairy and nuts.

I topped these with sesame seeds prior to baking as a “natural” sprinkle alternative (plus it fits with the tahini) but that is optional.
