2 organic eggs

3 tablespoon maple syrup

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • add the walnuts roughly chopped and the cocoa beans
  • place the batter into the muffin forms (fill up just until 3/4 of the form)

  • to know when they are cooked: they should look golden from outside and if you place gently a wooden toothpick in it, it comes out clean
  • let them cool down a bit and enjoy !


you can replace the gluten free flour mix with what you have at home.

you can also replace walnuts and cocoa beans with your favourite things to give it a little texture when you bite them.
