My family loves these muffins and I love that they are lower in sugar.

  • Combine flour, sugar, stevia, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk sour cream, butter, and eggs together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture just until batter is moistened. Fold coconut and chocolate chips into batter. Fill the prepared muffin cups 2/3-full with batter and top with sliced almonds.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool muffins for 5 minutes in the tin before transferring to a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

Stevia is a natural sweetener used in South America. It is sold in the United States as stevia or Truvia(R).

While making the recipe I realized there was no mention of the almond extract in the directions so I added it while whisking the wet ingredients. I used a full cup of sugar in this recipe and increased the coconut content to 1.5 cups. These came out great at exactly the prescribed amount of time. Read More

Tired of people putting specialty ingredients in the recipes. I live in the middle east and can't find Stevia anywhere. And trying to find conversions for this are all over the place. I had 1/4 cup of Stevia being equal to anywhere between 1/2 cup to 2 cups of sugar. Another minor thing - almond extract in the list of ingredients but not in the directions. Almost forgot it.

These were very nice and the recipe made nice sized muffins. I am a coco"nut" so next time I will add a bit more coconut for me and a few more chocolate chips for the chocoholic in the house. But they were very good without any changes. Thanks for sharing! Read More

These are very good. I follow the recipe as stated with the exception of using 1 tsp of coconut extract (Olive Nation.com) instead of almond and using 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of stevia and they're very tasty muffins with or without the chocolate. Read More

I adjusted the recipe for 9 muffins but still got 12. I filled the cups 3/4 full. I didn't add the chips don't think they need it I might add Craisins. Plan to toast the coconut and increase the almond extract next time. Will definitely make again! Read More

I used mayonnaise instead of sour cream, simply because I was out of sour cream. Also used 1 cup of sugar instead of sugar and stevia mix. Turned out great! Read More

I did not have Stevia so I just left it out and they are plenty sweet. Also the recipe does not mention when to add the flavoring so I just put it in with the other wet ingredients. I made them using "jumbo" muffin cups and got a dozen. Read More

Tasty! I didn't have almond extract so I substituted almond meal for half the flour. And I only had 1/3 of the sour cream called for so I used coconut milk for the rest. Turned out great! Read More
