Cocoa Oat Muffins

Every week, I make a new muffin. So you can imagine just how many muffins I’ve made (just look here for a peak at all of them). There are a lot!

But, I also get bored of making the same ones. So, today, I tried a new cocoa muffin because Amelia has been asking me for a chocolate one. Now, I usually hide veggies in cocoa muffins because the cocoa covers the green color of the veggies I mix in. But today, I wanted her to have something a little more exciting since Valentine’s Day is upon us.

This muffin does have sugar, so it’s a bit decadent (for me!). But, it’s yummy and good and the girls loved it. That’s really all that matters in the end! ❤
