Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffins

These muffins were amazing. They are supposedly a knock-off of Whole Food’s Chocolate Chunk VitaTop Muffins which are $6 for four muffins. I was kinda skeptical they would work to be honest. But I made the batch and gave them to my taste testers. Logan downed the suckers. He ate one with me and then snuck two more later. Thinking I wouldn’t figure it out… I’m onto you mister! I stuck the rest in a bag and froze them, thinking we can just throw them on the counter and let them defrost overnight when we know we’ll be eating them for breakfast the next morning. I calculated the nutrition for these because I used agave nectar and they ended up being about 100 calories a muffin. Which is pretty dang good for a muffin! Add some fresh fruit in the morning and you have yourself a great way to start the day!
