One Bowl Fudgy Chocolate Coconut Muffins

One Bowl Fudgy Chocolate Coconut Muffins

We are well an truly into the routine of making and packing lunches for a new year here.  I like to ask the boys what they would like as their baked treat each week and last week Mr nearly 5 who is in Prep asked for chocolate muffins.  Seemed like a fair request.  But as usual with me I can’t just make normal chocolate muffins I like to switch it up a little bit and use any leftover ingredients I may have in the fridge.

This week i had half a can of coconut milk leftover from a meal during the week so this was going into the muffins.  Add in all the other pretty standard ingredients and I ended up with a chocolate muffin that was nice and fudgy with a coconut undertone.

How are you going with the lunchbox routine again?  I find that I am having a Sunday Bakeathon in the afternoon and I find that it sets me up for the week ahead and since I love cooking I also find it relaxing (except for the dishes part).

3/4 Cup Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Dessicated Coconut
1 Egg

1. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together until just combined. (Don’t over mix it).  Spoon into a 12 hole muffin tray lined with muffin cases.  Place into a preheated 180 degree celsius oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bounce back when touched.
