Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

If there is a way to sneak chocolate into breakfast, I’m on board! I’ve spoken about my love of the chocolate and orange flavor pairing, therefore, I’m shocked it took me so long to come up with this muffin recipe. Even with the few dark chocolate chips thrown into the batter, these muffins lean on the healthier side so you don’t need to feel guilty treating yourself to something sweet.

If you want to enjoy the “right out of the oven” pleasure each time you tuck into one of the muffins, just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds. When they come out they will be nice and warm with slightly melted chips. Perfection – am I right?!

I’m a plain jane when it comes to my beverage of choice – water. That’s right. I will pass up a tall glass of ice tea on a warm day for a chilled bottle of water. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a sweet treat every now and then.
