If you are anything like myself, and enjoy a dessert that’s rich, decadent, but made with healthy ingredients and no added sugar – THIS is where it’s at. These fudge-y delights are made of dates + nut butter + chocolate + eggs. SRSLY. Real food ingredients that are satisfying, and a yummy guilt-free dessert!

I’ve recently been on a kick to make “healthier” dessert recipes. I figured since it’s still the beginning of the year that we can keep things on the wholesome side (but still yummy). I recently made Healthy Breakfast Mini Pies and Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Cookies – both are DELICIOUS and show that you can make yummy + satisfying treats made with wholesome ingredients. These flourless chocolate muffins are no different.

These fudge-y muffins are the real deal. They’re a mix between a muffin and a fudge-y brownie. So it’s the best of both worlds and are for all the chocolate lovers out there. I hope they fill up your heart and that you eat them as fast as we did… ?
