Double Chocolate Rye Muffins with Coconut Cream and Date Syrup

The moist, tender chocolate muffins are best enjoyed still warm from the oven, but they will keep for a week in an airtight container and they freeze well. Serve them with some pomegranate seeds if desired. Besides date syrup, you can use honey or maple syrup instead. For a healthier and less sweet version, replace some of it with a ripe banana or applesauce.

Dry IngredientsWet Ingredients
  • 200 g Dark rye flour
  • 80 g White spelt flour
  • 40 g Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Coarse sea salt, plus a pinch to sprinkle on top
  • 100 g 50%-70% Cacao dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 Medium eggs, at room-temperature
  • 250 ml Full-fat coconut milk
  • 150 ml Date syrup
  • 150 ml Cold-pressed olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper cases or grease a jumbo 6-cup muffin tin with olive oil and dust with a bit of flour.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients except the salt and chocolate in a large mixing bowl. Add half the sea salt and reserve the remainder for topping. Add half the chocolate and set the rest aside.
  3. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl for about a minute. Then add the coconut milk, date syrup and olive oil while constantly whisking. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and use a spatula to carefully fold everything until combined.
  4. Divide the batter among the muffin cases and top with the remaining dark chocolate. Bake for about 18 minutes for smaller muffins and 22-25 minutes for the jumbo ones until well risen and spongey and the chocolate has melted. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining sea salt.

Cuando he leído el título de la receta se me han agrandado los ojos, la harina de centeno es una de mis preferidas y todo lo que se prepara con ella queda exquisito. Estos muffins están para no dejar ni las migas.
Un beso.

Looks so sinful that eating one would probably require about a hundred hail marys!

These look yummy. I made some double chocolate muffins the other day but they are not as interesting as these. I did use a recipe that used the cake mix as the base; that is the only interesting part. Hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs-Erika

I admire how you wonderfully incorporate rye flour (Which is more associated with savoury things to me) into sweet recipes! These muffins look decadent and delicious!

A batch of six - keep for a week - you jest of course! - more like six hours! :)

These look so moist and delicious, just right for a chocolate lover addict like myself.

Coconut Cream is also a new to me addition to a dish, so I'm up for trying that too.

Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day! :)

Ooh, these look sumptuous indeed Angie. I love using rye flour in baking, it always produces a much smoother texture than I expect.
