Triple Chocolate Muffins are a great breakfast treat!
Triple Chocolate Muffins:
These muffins are made triple chocolate delicious by adding in cocoa powder, chocolate almond milk and chocolate chips. They are given a nutritional boost by using avocado, banana, almond milk, coconut sugar and white whole wheat flour.
These are always a bit hit at my house for breakfast! It’s an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast- yay!
Superfood Weeknight Meals:
The recipe comes from Superfood Weeknight Meals: Healthy, Delicious Dinners Ready in 30 Minutes or Less by Kelly Pfeiffer (www.NoshAndNourish.com). You’ll find meals that are fast, delicious and healthy in this cookbook! The recipes in this book focus on 10 everyday superfoods: avocado, cauliflower, citrus fruit, almonds, quinoa, olive oil, eggs, lentils, sweet potatoes and spinach.
Here are some recipes in the book that are on my must-make list: Thai-Chicken Sweet Potato Bisque, BBQ Chicken Burgers with Spiralized Apples, Pineapple Teriyaki Bowls, Super Greens Mac and Cheese Cups, Cauliflower Meatballs over Zoodles, Cheeseburger Soup, Lemon- Bourbon Salmon Tacos, Citrus BBQ Shrimp with Sweet Potato Hash, Sweet Potato Pancakes, Loaded Avocado Toast, Meyer Lemon Bars and Key Lime Pie.
Although this book is primarily focused on healthy dinners, I chose to make a recipe from the breakfast section. BY THE WAY, you can totally have breakfast for dinner!
I like that this recipe only makes one dozen. We eat four for breakfast, and we pop the rest into the freezer to enjoy another time. There is no reason to overdo it. Keeping them in the freezer means they’re SAFE from excessive-munching. Right?!
These Triple Chocolate Muffins are loaded with chocolate. The recipe calls for chocolate almond milk- which is easy to find in a box near the other almond milk at your market. I had never had chocolate almond milk before, and I must say that it’s quite delicious (so you’ll totally enjoy your chocolate almond milk leftovers!)
Serving suggestion: eat these warm… with a little bit of almond butter or peanut butter slathered on them. THEY’RE SO GOOD! Enjoy!
