Olivia’s orange zest + walnut dancing muffins

*gluten-free, no refined sugar, vegan version available


  • Almond flour approx 1 cup
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder – Olivia was in charge of this 🧐 roughly 1/4-1/3 cup
  • Mixed chia, hemp and ground flax seeds 1/3 cup
  • Baking powder 2 tsp
  • Lakanto monk fruit + erythritol sweetener 1/3 cup
  • 1 ripe, mashed banana
  • 2 eggs or *Vegan version: add 2 table spoons of ground flax seeds to 6 table spoons of water; mix and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes in the fridge
  • A splash of almond milk
  • Dark, vegan chocolate chips (we used stevia-sweetened ones) – 1/3-1/2 cup


Mix all ingredients well, until texture is uniform.

Half the mixture to be mixed with: Fresh orange zest – a very small amount – enough to fit in 1-1.5 tsp it is preferable to eat the orange in the process, as Olivia did 🍊 👧

The other half of the mixture to be mixed with: Roughly chopped raw walnuts 1/3 cup or to taste.

Preheat oven to 375 C. Lightly line cupcake pan with avocado oil. Pour mixtures evenly to create equal sized cupcakes. Bake until ready (approx 30-40 min) and cool before serving.

Yields 12 muffins: 6 with each flavor
