Lime, Dark Chocolate and Coconut Muffins

The breakfast rut blues.  That’s how I’ve felt lately.  I’ve been meh about oatmeal.  Blah about my long-standing toast with peanut or almond butter.  No love for greek yogurt topped with fruit.  None of it is doing anything for me these days.  I love breakfast (read I am hangry in the morning and you don’t want to be around me until I’ve had coffee and then something to eat) but the funk wouldn’t go away.

Clearly I needed to bust out of it with some freshly baked muffins.  With chocolate.  Obviously.

Since these were intended to be for breakfast time, I healthified them up a tad to feel better about eating them first thing in the morning.  There’s some whole wheat flour.  Only honey and maple syrup to sweeten them up.  Coconut oil.

And if you want, you can sub out the chocolate (although then we can’t be friends because who doesn’t like some dark chocolate for breakfast) for fresh or frozen blueberries.

I kid – I make these both ways.  And like them equally.  So we can still be friends.
