Skinny Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins

Skinny Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins

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)

Give these a try and let me know what you think! Follow for the latest recipes @lolosdesserts on Instagram and Facebook. Plus, snap a photo of any Lolo's creations you bake and post it with the tag #lolosdesserts. I love to see what you are making!
