Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 190′ and greese 6 silicon cupcake liners with some oil.
  2. In a bowl, food processor or thermomix add the flours, the eggs, flavourings, erythritol and palm shortening (melted).
  3. Blitz together until combined. If using a thermomix use speed 4 for 10 seconds.
  4. Check ingredients have combined by scraping a spoon round the edge of the bowl. (If they haven’t, give it another blitz).
  5. Add in coconut milk (or juice) and blitz again until combined. Thermomix users – use speed 4 for 8 seconds.
  6. Add in the bicarb of soda and the apple cider vinegar (you’ll see it fizz) and blitz for a few seconds to combine. Add in the chia seeds and chopped cherries and stir by hand. Thermomix users – use speed 2 for 6 seconds on reverse!
  7. Scoop the mixture into muffin cups – approximatley 2 1/2 spoons for each cup. You can make 9 muffins if you wanted them a little smaller, which would be approx 1 and 1/2 spoons per muffin cup. If you are using toppings, sprinkle on just before you place in the oven.
  8. Place in the oven for 20 – 26 minutes. (After 20 minutes insert a skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean they are done, if there is mixture stuck to it, give them a few more minutes).
  9. When cooked carfeully tip out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool for 10 minutes. For the chocolate drizzle, when you turn the oven off place 3 squares of chocolate in an oven proof dish and place in the (cooling) oven to melt.
  10. Chocolate Drizzle – remove the melted chocolate from the oven and using a spoon drizzle over the muffins then leave to cool.
  11. If you can wait long enough, allow to cool. If you’re anything like me, you’ll have a lovely cuppa ready and waiting the moment these babies break out the oven – ha!
  12. Serve and enjoy!
