Healthy choco-nuts muffin madness

How about some muffin madness with chocolate and mixed nuts girls?! I was craving for a “muffin moment” and the recipe that came out of it is truly ah-ma-zing. These cute, light and fluffy brown handhelds are actually healthy and diet-friendly too. Are you ready to throw a choco muffin party?

I probably eat a chocolate treat every week and therefore I challenge myself each time to come up with a brand new and even more healthy choco recipe. This recipe for choco mixed nuts muffins is sugar-free, low fat and low in calorie. As always I like to keep my recipes simple and nutritious, which makes it easy to make and to incorporate into our bikini diet. Another BIG plus of a muffin is that they are perfect at any time of the day – breakfast, snack, lunch, pre-workout or even for dinner if they’re savory!

One tip: when you bring these babies with you to school or work, bring more! Your friends and colleagues will be chasing after your choco-nuts muffin 😉

      Hi Holly!

      Actually I don’t have to much in my freezer, as I always give away my baking stuff to my parents, friends, neighbors and..my boyfriends takes the (eating)lead ha ha!

      But whenever I eat something defrosted it’s still delicious and keeps it taste, however I gotta be honest: fresh is the best! 🙂

      Have a great day!

      With love,

    Is the mixture supposed to be this liquid? I’m getting a little worried.

    In plaats van Cocos meel amandel meel gebruikt. ..omdat mijn supermarkt het niet verkocht. Niet geroerd maar de staafmixer gebruikt en uitgeschoten met het zout. Geen keuken prinses.

    Volgende week ga ik je cheese cake proberen. Hopelijk dan meer succes!

      O jee!

      Wat balen! Dat kan gebeuren, ik heb ook vaak genoeg iets in de prullenbak moeten gooien hoor.. It happens to the best of us 🙂

      Succes met de taart, dit is een no-bake receptje dus dat is al makkelijker!

      Hou je me op de hoogte? Leuk!

      Fijne dag en liefs,

    Pam it is. Celery root acts like a root vegetable it smlles like celery but the taste is different (sweeter but still celery like) and isn’t stringy. They are ugly for sure and most people pass them by when shopping (usually kept near the ginger, horseradish, etc.) but they are worth the bit of effort to cut the skin off. I usually will boil or roast mine. Ty are great in a mash I will be posting a recipe this week if how I use them in mashed potatoes as a Thanksgiving recipe.
