Yummy Oatmeal Chocolate Muffins

Can Chocolate Equal Healthy… I hope so! So having kids means having snacks and sometimes it feels you have to choose between healthy and tasty, but here are some yummy oatmeal chocolate muffins that fits the bill for both, they are also flourless! Of course when one says healthy they don’t think chocolate and to be honest these aren’t in the same league as traditional health foods, but they are a quick, easy and delicious alternative to other, much less healthier options.
