THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY LAKANTO, ALL OPINIONS ARE 100% MY OWN.  

I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite companies, Lakanto, to make these Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins using their new sugar free monk fruit Baking Sweetener and sugar free chocolate chips. These muffins are sugar free and ready in less than 25 minutes.

What ingredients do I need to make these Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins?

  • Self rising flour or Kodiak Cakes Whole Grain Pancake Mix– the point value is less if you use the Kodiak Pancake Mix
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Baking sugar substitute or zero point white granulated sugar substitute (I use Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Large eggs or 4 large egg whites
  • Skim or unsweetened almond milk 
  • Vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened applesauce 
  • No sugar added chocolate chips ( I use Lakanto sugarless chocolate chips)

What sweetener and chocolate chips do I use to make these Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins?

These can be made with any zero point white granulated sugar substitute. Keep in mind not all sweeteners are the same..they may vary in sweetness and point values. 

The sweetener I use and recommend for these Double Chocolate Muffins is Lakanto sugar free monk fruit baking sweetener. Lakanto Baking Sweetener matches the sweetness of sugar, helping you fill your kitchen with a healthy cup-for-cup alternative to ordinary baking and cooking ingredients.

What is Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener?

  • TASTES JUST LIKE SUGAR: Contains zero net carbs and zero calories.  Perfect for baking cookies, cakes, and other sweet, sugar-free treats.
  • LIFESTYLE FRIENDLY: Works with WW, ketogenic, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, non-GMO, and all-natural diets.

What is the difference between Lakanto Monk Fruit Classic Sweetener and the Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener? 

  • BETTER FOR BAKING: Lakanto Baking Sweetener dissolves effortlessly, retains moisture, can control cookie spread, and provides better browning for your desserts.
  • Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener provides the same great taste and sweetness you’ll find in Lakanto Golden and Classic Monkfruit Sweeteners, but it’s even better for baking. 

Bakes just like sugar, zero net carbs, and NO aftertaste!

 I use Lakanto Sugar Free Chocolate Chips in these Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins. Lakanto Sugar Free Chocolate Chips are gluten free and sweetened with monk fruit. 

They have no aftertaste and melt perfectly!

I made these today as described in the recipe. The only thing I did differently was - i made 12 regular muffins and 12 mini-muffins. They tasted great except a little too much chocolate for me. I will reduce the amount of cocoa next time and maybe add a little more monk fruit. It was an easy recipe to follow and they are really good. Thanks.
