Everybody loves chocolate and everybody loves muffins, right? At least everybody I know does. Chocolate muffins do not really scream healthy. You might already know that I like to make otherwise indulgent recipes somewhat more healthy without losing any flavor. I did the same this time by making the muffins 100% plant-based and choosing the oat flour carefully, also gluten-free.
These muffins have a funny story behind them. A few weeks back we had our first sunny and warm day this year, and I used this to work in my garden. I also had a yoga class to teach that evening but somehow I managed to get into such a zen mode, that I just didn’t look at the time at all. So, when my partner asked me 5 minutes before my class was about to start if it was canceled today I was super surprised by how late it was. Luckily the studio is really close to my house and I was only late 5 minutes after a nice run. So as an apology for being late (I hate being late), I baked the muffins for my students. They approved and now I can share the recipe with all of you, my yoga and healthy food-loving friends.
