Triple Chocolate Gluten-Free Muffins


My old roommate and I may not live together anymore, but we still enjoy sharing recipes with each other. After catching up at happy hour last week, she brought me one of these delectable muffins to try becuase if she knows me, and she does, then she knows that I LOVE trying new recipes, especially healthier versions of our favorites. Each muffin is only 95 calories, 3 g of fat, 4 g of sugar, and 5 g of protein. The original recipe claims that these are a knock-off of VitaTop muffins...but all I know is that they are DELICIOUS!

I even went as far as to take a large batch of these to my office and pass out the recipe so that they could all make these at home for a healthier breakfast option when on the go!

Lastly, be sure to follow me on instagram for more photos and recipe ideas! @hotdogfoodblog
