Dark Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

Jan 24, 2019

I was craving something a little sweet today, so I decided to make these dark chocolate blueberry muffins.  While I love to cook, I feel like baking is more therapeutic.  Can anyone relate to this?  

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

Maybe the reason is that I rarely ever bake and cooking is more of a daily thing.  

These dark chocolate blueberry oat muffins definitely fulfilled my sweet tooth.  These muffins crumble right in your mouth.  I think they would be perfect for a dessert, snack, or even breakfast.
