Kiwi Chocolate Chip Muffins (THM S)

From May to October you can walk into you local supermarket and find these SunGold Kiwifruit.  I fell in love with them at first taste, they have a lovely mild flavor with a hint of lemon….and are delicious and nutritious.  So partnering with Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit to do a sponsored post was a no-brainer.  I only do sponsored posts for products I really think are high quality and use regularly so these little guys fit those requirements without issue.  However, buyer beware they’re super yummy to just cut and scoop into with a spoon, so you’ll have to stop yourself from eating them all up too quickly.  You’ll need to save a few to be able to make my delicious Kiwi Chocolate Chip Muffins I’m sharing with you now, so control yourselves!!  lol

It’s so good to know you are helping yourself by eating these little guys up as they are packed full of  Vitamin C, E, potassium and fiber.  My kids enjoy these kiwifruit happily as a super healthy nutritious snack and that makes this Mama happy!

These Kiwi Chocolate Chip Muffins became a fast favorite in the Benoit (pronounced BenWah FYI) household.  Using the Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit in this recipe creates a light sweet and slightly tangy outcome that everyone will enjoy.  I love that these are a ‘no sugar’ added, ‘gluten free’, moist, flavorful, healthy treat that I can give to my family happily knowing that I’m nourishing their bodies and helping them make excellent food choices.  Gotta Love That!!! <3

These little numbers are Trim Healthy Mama (learn more about THM here) approved in an S, aka ‘Satisfying’ setting (low carb, high fat) occasionally.  Kiwi are technically an E, aka ‘Energizing’ (higher carb low fat) Fruit, but as they have such a low impact on the Glycemic Index and are so high in fiber we can enjoy 1 kiwifruit in an S or FP aka Fuel Pull (low fat & low carb) setting every once in an while!!!  YAY!!!

So keeping that guideline in mind you should keep your serving size of my Kiwi Chocolate Chip Muffins to 2 or 2 1/2 max in a setting.  A great meal pairing scenario would be to have a lovely Deep S meal followed by enjoying two of these little gems for dessert.  Or you can grab 2 of these little guys as a snack or as a quick ‘grab and go’ breakfast paired with a yummy Chrissy’s Bullet Proof Coffee. That way you’ll have amply protein and lots of great flavor to satisfy your hunger!

Ingredients

4 large Eggs

2½ Tbsp of Super Sweet Blend – or – ¼ cup Gentle Sweet Blend

2 doonks pure Stevia

¼ tsp Mineral Salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

--

1 ¼ cup Baking Blend or Nili’s Blend

1 ½ tsp of Baking Powder – rounded

¼ cup Butter – melted

¼ cup Kiwi Puree (1 medium kiwi)

¼ cup of Water

--

½ – ⅓ cup Chocolate Chips (on plan of course)

2 Kiwi – peeled & diced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin tin with paper muffin liners (makes 8 good sized or 12 medium sized muffins)
  2. 1. Blend together eggs, sweeteners, salt, and vanilla until well mixed.
  3. 2. Add to that – baking blend, baking powder, butter or coconut oil, kiwi puree and water. Mix well.
  4. 3. Add plan approved chocolate chips & diced kiwi, and mix in well. Your batter should be thick. Like a hardy Pancake batter, but not too thick. Use your best judgment here and add more water if necessary. Start with a tbsp and go from there.
  5. 4. Scoop ⅓ cup amount into well greased muffin pans (I use butter for best non stick results).
  6. 5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 mins. Test around the 20 minute mark.
  7. 6. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing from your tin.
