I was craving something a little sweet today, so I decided to make these dark chocolate blueberry muffins. While I love to cook, I feel like baking is more therapeutic. Can anyone relate to this?
Maybe the reason is that I rarely ever bake and cooking is more of a daily thing.
These dark chocolate blueberry oat muffins definitely fulfilled my sweet tooth. These muffins crumble right in your mouth. I think they would be perfect for a dessert, snack, or even breakfast.
