Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

This recipe came from Simple and Delicious Magazine. I actually found it sometime ago and had cut it out and put it in my "make someday when I get around to it" file. Well, I finally made it and am glad I did. Not only are the chocolate, but they are actually pretty healthy for you! The girls and I adored them and a friend I shared them with liked them so well, she even made them for her son's 2nd birthday- to keep things tasty but also healthy.

  1. So random, but how was the move? How are you? I don't blog much but just last week I thought of you and wondered how your eight structured meals went over the course of that month-long hotel-staying move. A.O.K? Hope so!

    This recipe is on my "better make 'em soon list" so I am excited! We've been doing boxed c.c.c. muffins of late. So glad I re-entered the blogosphere today to find this!
