I was craving a little sweetness the other day and so after a little experimentation in the kitchen I came up with these delicious Cocoa Coconut Almond Muffins! They are dairy free, gluten free and sugar free (except for a few chocolate chips).
This is a dual-purpose recipe; use for snacks, a mid afternoon treat-something you definitely need in your recipe repertoire. The coconut oil will help keep you feeling full and satisfied -helping to prevent unnecessary snacking.
Consider starting your meal with one of my absolute favs: Boston Lettuce, Peach and Ricotta Salad and complete with this beauty of a muffin.
