  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup ghee or clarified butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup chopped fresh sweet cherries
  • 1 cup high-quality bittersweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Generously grease the cups of a standard, one-dozen muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, coconut sugar, salt and baking soda. Beat the eggs in a small bowl, and stir into the almond flour mixture. Add the melted ghee and beat lightly by hand with a wooden spoon, until thoroughly combined. Fold in the cherries and chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the batter equally between the greased muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool completely before serving.
