Yeah, it's a muffin...juuuuuuust barely

I am a muffin lover. I will never make my way through all the muffin recipes I've collected. Doesn't stop me from trying, of course.

Tonight's muffin was sweet enough to be my dessert. Happily it also has enough healthy ingredients to make me not feel as guilty when I savor it.

This muffin tastes exactly like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie. It also hides the flavor of the grain-sweetened chips that just don't taste good on their own. I'm not buying them again, for sure. I'll go for the healthy stuff for everything else, but the chocolate stays real.
