  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Brown your butter. Heat butter over medium high heat until it completely melts. Lower the heat to medium low and cook until brown bits start to appear. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Once cool, add the coconut milk, light brown sugar, vanilla extract, egg, and salt to the bowl. Mix until combined.
  • Add the sweet rice flour and baking powder. Mix until a smooth batter forms.
  • Add the dark chocolate chunks. Mix until combined.
  • Grease the muffin pan.
  • Using a cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the muffin batter into the pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the edges turn a golden color.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before serving.


  • How do you store these muffins? - Store these muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Can I use less sugar? - Yes you can, but it will make the muffin drier since sugar provides both moisture and sweetness. I would reduce the sweet rice flour by the same amount if you choose to reduce the sugar.
