I set out to create a new muffin recipe but we all agreed these would lovely for dessert. We enjoyed them as is but feel free to top them with your favorite plant-based frosting.

The slightly tart berries are a nice contrast to the rich, dark chocolate. Try subbing raspberries or blueberries!

  • 1 C. sugar
