Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins
gluten-free // grain-free
I’m a big fan of the 80/20 rule, AKA 80% of the time, be your healthiest self, and 20% of the time, indulge guilt-free. The best kind of treats make you THINK you’re indulging, but really they fit perfectly into your healthy lifestyle- just like these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins.
