Start your day off with these Sugar Free Cocoa Muffins
Sugar Free Cocoa Muffins
I am sure that there is some debate somewhere about whether these muffins are indeed muffins and not cupcakes. Perhaps, you could make these with a yummy frosting on top and call it a cupcake. However, I will stick the muffin idea and serve these for breakfast.
I always think that making something like this for breakfast means that there is something less sweet or less decadent than a dessert.
Oddly enough, the chocolate muffin and the chocolate cupcake may not differ too much when it comes to the basic cake that is in the muffin itself.
The difference between the cupcake and this may very well fall in what we put on the top of it. The basic ingredients are pretty similar between the two. When we bake the muffin, according to the recipe, and add a bit of frosting to the top and it suddenly becomes a cupcake.
I like that I can eat a chocolate muffin however, without all of the sugar in it.
The absence of sugar helps me enjoy the actual chocolate taste more. Sometimes, I just need to appreciate chocolate rather than get a quick sugar indulgence.
Pair this chocolate muffin with a cup of milk and/ or coffee and you have a perfect on the go or at home while reading the paper kind of a breakfast. Hence, kids and adults can all enjoy this one. Am I right?
