And now for dessert!

These Chocolate Orange Muffins actually have the taste of a chocolate orange; while still being healthy enough to eat for breakfast!

They are also:

  • plant-based
  • high in protein & fiber
  • bursting with flavor

    4. Add all wet ingredients to a food processor. Process until everything is broken down and combined.
    5. Add in your dry ingredients. Process until everything is combined.* img_7293
    6. Distribute your batter among the 9 muffin holes. Smooth the tops with a spoon.
    7. Bake for 18 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from pan.**

    *If your food processor is too small to hold everything, after processing your wet ingredients add in your oats and process again. Then transfer everything to a mixing bowl, add in the rest of your dry ingredients and whisk. img_7284

  • I topped mine with prepared powder peanut butter. And ate them after refrigerated because I think they taste best chilled. Allow a few hours for all the flavors to settle before eating.
