  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour or sub arrowroot flour. If Paleo is not important, cornstarch can be used

  • 2 large eggs room temp
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT chocolate chips. Use a whisk to stir until batter is smooth and has an even consistency and color.
  • Add chocolate chips to batter and stir a few times until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  • Portion out the batter between the lined muffin holes.
