Chocolate Chip Muffins

I made these for lunch yesterday. I have been wishing for chocolate chip muffins for a while now, and thought I would take a swing at "creating" some.
I was aiming for muffins that had a nice flavor balance. I didn't want them to be those cakey sugary sweet ones I ate as a little kid, so I gambled. I used unsweetened chocolate. Normally that would be bitter. So I compensated... with a whole cup of honey. Then I was concerned that the honey would overpower the muffins, on the contrary, they ended up with just enough sweetness. Perfect.
Be sure to make enough of that dark coffee to have along with the muffins, they're so good together.

    I'm always trying to figure out ways to cut back on refined foods/add more organic stuff~~of course without making stuff that tastes like sawdust :D :):):)

  3. Love the little flag of victory! So cute!
