Eating clean can be a challenge for many people because it requires you to remove all processed foods from your diet.

And one very important processed food is all-purpose flour. Flour makes cakes and cookies, thickens soups, is the base for bread, and so many other tasty things. Hence the challenge.

Once way I’ve been able to bake without using wheat flour is to use coconut flour. Coconut flour is a clean food and is a great way to make gluten-free recipes. Plus, it bakes very well and holds up in the oven.

These gluten-free double chocolate muffins are completely clean, gluten-free, and guilt-free. In addition to the coconut flour, I use unsweetened applesauce and coconut oil to replace any unhealthy oils and coconut sugar to replace any refined sugars. Plus, they’re grain-free and nut-free so we got all the bases covered!
