The more chocolate the better, don’t you agree?! This recipe is super easy and it’s guaranteed to make everyone happy and full of energy due to the uplifting and balancing properties of cocoa and maca. That’s why these muffins make a great and healthier pick-me-up treat.

For this recipe, you can use any organic dairy and refined sugar-free chocolate chips. There are lots of brands out there, and you can choose between products sweetened with coconut sugar, honey, agave, stevia. Pick your favourite from any health store and if you can’t find one easily you can crush your favourite healthy chocolate bar into small pieces.
