So I’ve been a little obsessed with anything chocolate these days…. especially for breakfast! I can’t get enough of my chocolate cappuccino overnight “oatties” and Love Grown Cocoa Goodness Oat Clusters.
A lot of you may ask yourself, what is the difference between cocoa/chocolate vs. organic cacao?
Well, I’ll tell you!
100% raw Cacao is a superfood which contains significantly high quantities of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other health-boosting, anti-aging, disease-fighting goodness. It has bountiful benefits, so you can add it to your diet with no guilt, just good old chocolatey deliciousness!
5 BENEFITS OF RAW ORGANIC CACAO
1. 40 Times the Antioxidants of Blueberries
2. Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron
3. Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain
4. More Calcium Than Cow’s Milk
5. A Natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant
Oh! and if this is any benefit, it is DELICIOUS!!!
So with all of those excuses to incorporate it more and more into my daily diet I decided to whip up some super simple, blender friendly chocolate muffins using whole ingredients including organic black beans, my favourite non-fat yogurt, banana, egg, unsweetened apple sauce, gluten-free rolled oats, pure maple syrup for added natural sweetness, 2 scoops of the most delicious rich chocolate pea protein powder, AND of course what would chocolate muffins be with some good ol’ chocolate chips!?!?
I used my go-to semi-sweet mini chocolate chips from Enjoy Life
For those of you interested (especially the workout fanatics like me!) I would highly suggest adding the pea protein to this recipe!
