Chocolate Chip Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel

Banana chocolate chip muffins

I used to be the self-proclaimed Paleo Dessert King.  That was until I stumbled across this recipe which is included in this amazing brand new Living Healthy With Chocolate E-book.  Adriana was kind enough to allow me to share just one teaser recipe with you, and it is of these amazing banana chocolate chip muffins with cinnamon streusel.  She sent me these about a week ago, and I made the mistake of baking them while no one was home.  Don’t know why that is a problem?  There was no one to share with and I may have over indulged quite a lot.  It was worth every painful bit past my full threshold and I would totally do it again.  After all, chocolate is healthy for you.

To be honest, when I first got my hands on this beautiful new book, I was jealous.  Jealous because I could not have designed something this spectacular or packed it full of the extensive knowledge.  Not to mention, create some of these mouth watering flavor combinations. I mean, I have my fair share of chocolate recipes, but these ones are out of this world.  Here are some of the amazing images contained in this book.

  1. These look delicious. Just curious, what does the coconut cream do? I have all the ingredients except for the cream. Just wondering if these would turn out without it.
