These scrumptious muffins even got the approval from my picky brother - so ladies, if you're family or spouse are selcective about their sweets, this one is guy approved. I don't want to stroke my own ego, but he even said they were moist and went really well with almond butter. Don't worry, I kept my composure and my mouth didn't quite drop to the floor with excitement that I finally made a recipe that he liked. I brushed off the compliment like I did the hazelnut flour off of my shirt, quick and easy - "oh they're good? That's cool." But really I was giddy with excitement to share this recipe with you guys because it took me all of 5 minutes, yes 5 freaking minutes to make this chocolate muffin of goodness.
