Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffins Recipe

I can’t stop at one serving when it comes to any dessert with chocolate in it. If I leave them sitting on the counter, I’ll literally catch myself finishing off a half batch of cookies, muffins or brownies in one day.

I can’t just control my sweet tooth! There are a few substitutions in these muffins that make you feel much better eating more than one.

Nobody in my family could say from eating them that they only had 58 calories per muffin. They were so smooth and tasty! I can’t wait to get them back!
