Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins
And these particular muffins are chocolate. Chocolate! Are you getting all this? So far we have a recipe that is essentially a chocolate cupcake that’s ok to eat for breakfast. Now who’s complaining about two muffin recipes in a row?
But I’m not done yet. Oh no, not even close.
As if little guys don’t have enough going for them already, I also made them, you guessed it, healthy!
Instead of using all spelt flour, which is what I would normally do, I decided to switch it up with a half whole wheat, half spelt flour mixture. Let me tell you, you cannot tell there’s whole wheat in these guys. The texture is just perfect! None of the dense and gummy stuff that sometimes comes along with whole wheat flour.
The awesomeness continues with the fact that these muffins are 100% fat free. There aren’t even any chocolate chips it them to ruin that claim (although if you’d like to add them I won’t complain). But like with the flour, you can’t tell. PERFECT texture.
Can you tell I just love these muffins?
It’s just so much fun when you find a recipe that’s healthy, but doesn’t taste it at all. And it’s even better when said recipe entitles you to chocolate “cake” before 9am. Hey, these muffins do have pumpkin, whole wheat flour, and no fat. Totally breakfast acceptable 😉
