Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins

Hello y’all! It’s Monday (again).  It was so gloomy and cold this morning, here in Almaty, but days like this are a perfect call for baking.

This morning I woke up craving chocolate, but as you all know, if I eat regular chocolate, I will cry for days and the guilt feeling will hunt me. So, instead of letting the circumstances of this gloomy day tempt me, I decided to make something that will be good and healthy, yet chocolaty.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins, with oat flour and peanut butter, without sugar! That’s right, zero sugar my friends! These muffins are so yummy and slightly sweet. So, we have a win-win situation!

Last time I made the Pumpkin Muffins, and I had so much fun in the kitchen. Now I had even more fun(read > mess ). Half of the kitchen was covered in chocolate, which in turn filled the whole apartment in a chocolate smell, reminding me of my San Diego summer mornings when I was passing by Ghirardelli corner. Damn, I will never forget that chocolate smell in the air. Kids love it! I love it! Who doesn’t?

But I love it even more when I know that is healthy, sugar free and guilt free. That’s why my chocolate peanut butter muffins are super amazing. Because they are healthy enough for you to actually eat them for breakfast with no guilt!

If I say my love is rich, dark, and handsome, who says it can’t be a healthy chocolate muffin?

Well we can all share this handsome superhero for breakfast, or an afternoon treat, or even dessert.

Because I already know that you guys will like these as much as I do, so if you try these, snap a photo and tag #bootiesandsmoothies on Instagram. I’m looking forward to seeing the photos!
