Skinny Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins

20 min
20 minutes

I’ve been trying to integrate more “healthy” desserts into my bag o’ tricks lately. Don’t worry, I’m still all about the indulgence in desserts but it’s called balance, right? Or at least that is what I keep telling myself every. single. monday.

These, my friends, are on the healthy side but don’t feel like it. They taste like a mix of a brownie and a muffin. Dave had no clue they were even a “skinny” version. No flour, low sugar and SO easy. You can control how many chocolate chips you want in these as well. (Might I suggest, a lot)

  1. My family loves this recipe and I make it often! I just realized I don’t have any Greek yogurt (vanilla or otherwise). Any substitutions you recommend?
