I had a hard time deciding what to call these muffins because they are grain-free, refined-sugar-free, dairy-free and paleo. That would make a pretty long title so healthy chocolate muffins it is!

I like to keep my freezer well stocked with things like homemade waffles and healthy muffins for easy snacks and breakfasts.

I also love these muffins because they are so easy to make! They are made with easy-to-find ingredients and only take 1 bowl and 30 minutes to make.I am definitely one to get the occasional (or frequent!) chocolate cravings and these muffins totally hit the spot. For another healthy recipe try these toddler muffins. I hope you love them as much as we do!
