Here is a photo of my first attempt at making healthy chocolate muffins with oats, nuts, cacao, avocado, yogurt, milk and honey. They smell really good and the taste isn’t bad… but I think I made the mixture too wet. Hopefully next time I will be more successful at making them. Then I will share a recipe.
