Cocoa Muffins

Coco Muffins

I can’t wait for strawberry season, with all the ideals I have in my head I am looking forward to purchasing those bright,  juicy and  sweet red berries. I am counting down the days until they get here! I know it will be here pretty soon and when the berries start flowing so will all my ideals.  Coco Muffins

There is something about placing bread in the oven and waiting for it to rise that’s magical. Cocoa muffins are light in calories and low in fat. They are bitter sweet and the flavor is more of dark chocolate without the cocoa butter and sugar.  If your craving chocolate and not looking to break your diet try rich cocoa muffins as a lighter treat.
