Have you heard of The Magic Muffin Mix? I had seen this on Pinterest before and was extremely intrigued. When Holly sent this to me I was excited to give it a try. Seeing the snow outside I knew that going for the chocolate chip mix was going to exactly what I was looking for. Gooey, melty, chocolate chips sounded like the perfect accompaniment to a snowy end to to the weekend.

The first thing I loved about this recipe is that it makes eight muffins. I hate when I bake and end up with 24 servings of something. Far too tempting in a household of two! This is a perfect amount for Mr. Charming & I to enjoy throughout the week.
I didn't have any Stevia, but found some Splenda leftover from my days when I thought it was God's gift to earth. I figured I'd use it up and then will stock up on some more natural stuff. It made the batter super sweet, so next time I might go a little easier on the sweetner. Also, I went with a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, I think 3/4 would have been way too many for how much batter this makes.
Muffins are a treat I really do enjoy but I have this stigma of staying away from pastries and baked goods for breakfast. They always contain far too many calories, sugar and carbs and barely any protein. I'm trying to shake this delusion from my mind as I know there are plenty of ways to "healthify" breakfast baked goods and I like to mix things up with my meals. Here are some recipes I've found that I'd really like to try out:
Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins
Double Chocolate Chobani Muffins from Dinners Dishes and Desserts
Chia Seed Quinoa Muffins from Eat Yourself Skinny
Low Sugar High Protein Lemon Raspberry Muffins from PopSugar
