Look, I found yet another way to make moccachocarula muffins! Maybe most people wouldn’t care, but I do. And if you’re into stuff with lots of protein, no gluten and no added sugar (except what’s in the Amarula and chocolate, if you add chocolate), then it might be up your alley, too. If not, fear not.

(Sugar works as a glue together with the fat.) You can make these vegan by substituting coconut oil for the butter. It results in a slightly different texture, but the taste is … Read more
