Whole Wheat Chocolate Muffins

Muffins are the kind of dessert I love to make and know I have a few in my freezer. It’s easy to prepare, quick and always are a great dessert to make at short notice.

The following recipe is for super-fudgy whole wheat chocolate muffins that are so easy to make. I like to serve it a little warm so they are super soft and the chocolate melts in your mouth – a real pleasure!
