Healthy Choco Muffins

Don’t send me roses, unless they are chocolate!

As a true chocoholic I obviously cannot skip these mouth-watering choco muffins. Don’t sweat it too much, as these contain cacao nibs made of 92% pure chocolate! I would be lying if I said I didn’t like milk chocolate, but with my changed lifestyle comes changed habits: so I’m going to appreciate the taste of pure chocolate and I’m going to LOVE it. 

Also, when you think of cacao it is not only a delicious flavour for your recipes. Raw cacao has so many more health benefits than it gets credit for! It’s a natural source of magnesium, which is good for your bones, muscles and teeth. It also relaxes the muscles and reduces stress. Are you having a bad day and feel like your mood could use a boost? These muffins are exactly what you need! The serotonins in the raw cacao will also assure to get you in a better mood 😉
