Olive Oil Chocolate Muffins

In this heat wave I simply can’t bring myself to make something that is more complicated than mixing a few ingredients in a bowl and sending it to the oven.

These olive oil chocolate muffins are so easy to make and are so chocolate-y and fudgy. I added some olive oil which makes them so moist and gives them a great fragrant you just won’t be able to resist. 10 minutes of work (tops!) – And it’s yours.
