Double chocolate – these dense cake-like or brownie muffins are rich-tasting and absolutely addictively delicious.  If you like your chocolate fix, this will surely help in that regard.  We loved these and they didn’t last very long as a result!

The sweetener tables for all the most common scenarios are in my cookbooks for your convenience.  For example, ¾ cup sugar sweetness (not ¾ cup liquid) using my bottle of sucralose from the EZ-Sweetz brand (whether the smaller one of 0.5 oz or the bigger yellow bottle of 2 oz – Zero carbs) would be 18 or 36 drops respectively.  Here is an article and video about the sweeteners. Part 1.  There is another article and video here: Part 2.

  OR use 21/2 cups Keto Bake Mix (625 mL)
1/2 cup cocoa (125 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)

Liquid sweetener  (sucralose or stevia) to equal 3/4 cup (175 mL)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (125 mL)
1/2 cup cream and water mixture (125 mL)
1/4 cup granulated sweetener of choice (60 mL)
3 tbsp melted coconut oil (45 mL)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (10 mL)
