Flourless Brownie Muffins

If you are anything like love Chocolate! And if you arent....what's wrong with you?!?!?! Just kidding....

Since starting my lifestyle change in March 2014, I thought I would never again be able to have chocolate without feeling guilty....I was so wrong!!

I made it one of my many missions to find things I loved when I wasnt paying attention to my health, and see if there was a way to clean them up! I wanted to eat clean & healthy - but still have those foods that satisfy my sweet tooth. I was so excited when I found this recipe of Flourless Muffins!! And like all recipes I find....I add a little of this or take away a little of that to make it my own :)

These dark chocolate muffins are delicious and surprisingly healthy.
