Chocolate Mousse Muffins (Optionally Gluten Free and Lactose / Dairy free!)

Tonight I spent some time in the kitchen baking! I was on Facebook, and came a cross an interesting looking muffin recipe - which only had 3 ingredients! I was curious, so I decided to make a batch - they turned out very well, and are extremely delicious!
We had our oven at a slightly lower temperature (well, maybe) - it can be a bit of a dodgy oven so we're never sure what temperature it's actually at! Also, we spooned it into little patty cake papers, and only cooked them for around 15 minutes instead of 20.

I found the recipe here: 4 Ingredients - Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes - it has information about the cookbook, and the page has other recipes with 4 or less ingredients in it!

Makes 12-15
250g (7oz) block of chocolate - preferably dark 70% cacao
3 eggs (beaten)
1/4 cup Self Raising Flour (Gluten Free if you are coeliac)
1. Melt chocolate (in microwave 10 secs at a time until melted).
2. Crack eggs into bowl with chocolate and beat well
3. Mix in 1/4 cup of the self raising/rising flour. Mix with a wooden spoon.
4. Spoon into patty cake papers (approx 12-15) 
5. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 mins at 180C/360F

Use dairy free dark chocolate if you are lactose intolerant or dairy free.
If you are not lactose intolerant or gluten free, then you can use normal self-raising flour and the chocolate of your choice.

Hope you enjoy this recipe - and remember to like my Facebook page here!
