Overnight Chocolate Muffins

  • 1 cup cassava flour Otto's preferred: see link below in Recipe Notes
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder Fair Trade only please
  • 1/2 cup yogurt or dairy-free yogurt (or if you can't find dairy-free probiotic yogurt, use 1/2 cup minus 1 Tablespoon coconut milk + 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup collagen see link and discount code below in Recipe Notes
  • 3 eggs preferably room temperature
  • 1 ounce unsweetened or bittersweet chocolate shaved (see Recipe Notes below and post info below recipe for sourcing)
  • 1 Tablespoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • flake salt for optional garnish (delicious!!); see link below in Recipe Notes

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter melted (to measure, place wafers (see link below in Recipe Notes) in 1/4 cup measuring spoon so they are slightly heaping; then melt very gently (over low heat) in dry small skillet or saucepan; make sure all your cooking tools are dry, no water
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder Fair Trade
  • 4-6 drops stevia to taste (If you don't like stevia, I think you'll still love this! My husband is in this camp. Only 4 drops makes a bittersweet topping. You shouldn't taste the stevia, just all the good chocolate.)


(Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit only if baking the muffins immediately.) Either way, line muffin cup pan with squares of torn parchment paper, or muffin cup liners. Set aside.

  • Combine in bowl: eggs, yogurt, fat of choice, maple syrup, and vanilla.

  • In separate bowl sift together cassava flour, cocoa powder, collagen, baking soda, and sea salt. Add shaved chocolate.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and use spatula to mix together thoroughly, without over-mixing.
  • Fill lined muffin pan with batter. Place muffin pan in room temperature oven overnight (or for 4 hours) to ferment. (Muffins may also be baked immediately, if you don't wish to ferment the batter.)

If your muffins were stored in the oven for their overnight ferment, remove them now. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Bake muffins until toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean, about 25 minutes for large muffins (start checking at about 18 minutes for smaller muffins). Allow muffins to cool slightly.
  • Chill muffins 15 minutes in freezer to help glaze to set. Dip cooled muffins in glaze, or use spoon to ladle it over the tops, tilting muffins to the side so any extra runs off. As the glaze sets, sprinkle with flake salt. Allow to come to room temperature, and serve.

Chocolate Glaze

  • In small bowl combine melted cocoa butter, cocoa powder and stevia. Whisk together until combined well. Set aside until muffins are chilled, before using. (Important Note: Make sure your bowl, whisk, spatula, melting pot [any and all tools used to make the chocolate glaze] are completely dry, no drops of water.)
