Clean Eating Chocolate Muffins
I’ve not made muffins in such a long time! In a way I was scared to attempt my own clean eating muffins because I thought the end result would be so far from the real thing that it would just end up being a waste of time!
Chocolate muffins have always been my favourite. How could they not be?! They’re so gooey, rich and decadent. I think I can speak on behalf of the rest of the world when I say this, no one can resist them! Well maybe you can but I guess my will power is just not all that strong 😛
So I had the idea of mixing chocolate and coconut to make these indulgent, yet healthy clean eating chocolate muffins. They turned out just as I hoped they would 🙂
These clean eating chocolate muffins are so moist and chocolaty! The best combination ever in my opinion![recipe_box]
