  4. Add the eggs to the large bowl and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
  5. Line a muffin tray with 12 muffin liners for easy removal. Pour the muffin mixture evenly into the muffin liners.

  7. Let cool for about 10 minutes before spreading with Valentine's Day Dip as frosting.

Vegan-friendly Version — Chia Egg

Swap eggs for chia eggs…
To make 1 chia egg, use a spice grinder to grind 1 tablespoon of chia seeds into a fine meal. Mix the ground chia seed meal with 3 tablespoon of water. Let the mixture meld together for 15 minutes or more, until thick like the consistency of a whisked egg.

Recommended Ingredient: Otto’s Cassava Flour

Cassava flour is made from peeled yuca, a starchy root vegetable. This flour is an excellent grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free baking powder that works well as a direct substitute for wheat flour in recipes. Unlike most gluten-free flours, cassava flour results in exceptional texture and mild taste.
