6 tablespoons unsalted organic butter, cut into pieces, plus more for the pan

3/4 cup coconut palm sugar( or sweetener of choice)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3 large eggs

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter muffin tins

In a glass mixing bowl, microwave butter and chocolate in 20-second increments, stirring between, until melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Stir in eggs one at a time, until combined. Add cornstarch, cocoa, flax, cinnamon and salt, stir vigorously until mixture is smooth and begins to pull away from side of bowl, about 2 minutes.
