Mini Chocolate Muffins

Well hello all!

Are you getting snow like we are in the Northeast?

We has some yesterday and appppaarreennnntttlllyy we are getting like 8-10″ of snow from tonight until tomorrow afternoon?

Sweet.

Can’t wait. I mean really. I.am.stoked.

::blank stare::

Granted, I live in New England. Yes, I know this. But, as I have gotten older…cleaning up snow SUCKS!

Anyways, Mother Nature, if you could like make it so I have a snow day tomorrow that would be awesome. Because all the schools are already cancelled….and I never get a day off.

Until then, feast your eyes on these babies.

Yummy, moist and super healthy for you.

This was my first experience with cooking with coconut oil. I was pleasantly surprised. I have always been weary because Patrick hates coconut. I think it is a texture thing for him.

I know, insanity. He also hates nuts.

::enter second blank look::

Anyway, there was NO coconut taste. NONE. Which is great because I didn’t have to worry about him thinking there was coconut in it.

However, he did do his weirdo face when he tried it because he thought I put coconut flakes in in. However I did not. Sometimes, I just shouldn’t tell him what I make things with…that way he will never know.

His sister told me about a time when he ate a WHOLE BOX of cookies that nuts in them and didn’t even slow down until someone said…

“Uhh, you realize there is nuts in those cookies” :CHOKES!:

Picky man.

However, I love these little guys. They are healthy, they are super awesome for pre and post workout meals, even a little something sweet after dinner.

Perfect little mini muffins! Enjoy!

  1. THIS SNOW IS NOT OK
    aghhhh

    anyway. These muffins are MORE than ok! Chocolate for breakfast is always the best!

  2. These look awesome. Cacao nibs and egg whites? That is just awesome. What a great muffin, healthy recipe

  3. Well I love coconut and nuts (Patrick hates both! ::blank stare::) and a healthy chocolate muffin would go over big in our house – add nuts and unsweetened coconut flakes…even better ;)

      Oh my goodness it is torture sometimes! He is such a prude when it comes to trying new things too! haha

  4. Winter has been crazy this year! We are in the middle of another snowstorm right now… sheesh! But, these mini chocolate muffins would be lovely to eat after shoveling all that snow ;)

  5. Those look delicious! Definitely wouldn’t mind having one of those with a big cup of coffee :)

    Happy Blogging!

  6. We keep trying to send all our snow out east to you, but it keeps piling up in the Midwest, too! Love your muffins…they wouldn’t last long here!!!

  7. These muffins look wholesome, Raven. I think I can enjoy them as the breakfast. I use protein powder a lot in my baking too.

  8. Mini muffins are always so cute. I have to chant to myself- that doesn’t mean that you can eat MORE. These would be hard to eat in moderation. They would go so well with my coffee!

    Oh my goodness. I have someone here that does that too although I won’t name names…it’s delicious until I know there is something that I don’t like inside. :-) My brother cooks and bakes with coconut oil and he HATES coconut. I always tease him and ask if he knows there is coconut in coconut oil…

  9. I feel bad because you guys have so much dang snow…and we have NONE, we’re so dry, and I keep wishing we could take some of yours! And I’d gladly take some of these muffins too!! Thank you so much for donating them!

  10. We’re not having much of a winter. In fact, CA just got a big dose of much needed rain. You have a great recipe here, Raven. I’ve not used coconut oil yet, but these muffins may just be the catalyst to work with it.
