9 Muffins You Can Eat for Dessert


Let’s face it: Muffins are kind of a dessert already.

They may be delicious, but they aren’t the healthiest thing you can eat for breakfast.

So then why fight it? Why not just turn these snacks into the delicious dessert item they already are… by adding CHOCOLATE!

Consider the chocolate recipes below to see what we mean:

    • If there ever were a muffin I could shovel into my face on the daily, it would be these cherry chocolate chip muffins. I’ve been quite smitten with cherries this summer, popping them like candy every time I walk past the cherry colander I keep filled at all times. So far the best cherries I’ve experienced this summer have …
  2. Paleo Banana Muffins Recipe

    • I not-so-secretly really love Paleo baked goods. There are times when I would actually choose a Paleo cookie over a regular one. I will pretty much always choose my Paleo coconut flour waffles over a regular waffle.  And most days I’d choose a Paleo muffin over a normal muffin. Paleo treats are pretty dang good! These Paleo banana muffins …

    • You know those muffins that are loaded with sugar and have no business being called breakfast food? I have to admit that I love those. Starting off the day with dessert is always fun, but these Paleo banana muffins are so not that type of muffin – and that’s a good thing, at least if you want to begin the day in …

    • Our family recipe for chocolate zucchini bread is one of only a few recipes I have from my dad’s side of the family. Most family recipes that I share come from my mom’s side, but this special recipe is from my dad’s mother, my Grandma Bessie. I don’t have nearly as many recipes from Grandma …
  5. Healthy Chocolate Muffins Recipe
    • Healthy Chocolate Muffins Photo
    • I have been dreaming of a healthy chocolate muffin for ages. Actually, to be exact, a healthy chocolate cherry muffin. The double chocolate part that was attained by adding a few mini chocolate chips wasn’t a necessity, I admit. But more chocolate? It was really a no brainer. Obviously more chocolate is always better. Not healthier I …
  6. Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins Recipe

    • It’s that time of year when gardens are starting to be overrun with squash and zucchinis. Oh, but not my garden because you see, I have a black thumb and pretty much kill any green living thing I try to grow. We have tried planting a small garden over the past years, and it has never worked …
  7. Paleo Chocolate Maple Tahini Muffins Recipe
    • Paleo Chocolate Maple Tahini Muffins Photo
    • Guys. Tahini is back. Partly because it’s DELICIOUS, and its ULTRA creamy, smooth self has smothered itself along every crack and crevice of my brain since it first hit my taste buds. AND, partly because it’s determined to not become the next chapter of the book entitled “random groceries that seem exciting at the time, …
  8. Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Muffins Recipe
    • Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Muffins Photo
    • The first time I made these muffins, I made them as cherry almond muffins. But then I realized that chocolate was begging to be involved. They just felt naked without chocolate! Chocolate cherry almond was too many flavors and so today, we have these amazing chocolate almond muffins. The muffin batter is almond flour based, but you can’t …
  9. Chunky Monkey Muffins Recipe
    • Chunky Monkey Muffins Photo
    • For some reason, I keep bringing my kids with me to the grocery store. I start out with wonderful intentions, hoping that by letting them choose foods, they will embrace eating more vegetables and be interested in joining me in the kitchen. By the end of it we’re all tired, bickering, and just trying to …
