Healthy Chocolate Walnut Muffins Recipe with Video

Chocolate muffin

Simple to make and fun to eat, chocolate walnut muffins can absolutely fit into the clean eating breakfast or snack category for kids. The key is simply to make your muffins with nutrient-dense “whole food” ingredients, be mindful of the oils you use, and keep a careful eye on added sugars. The chocolate walnut muffins in the recipe below are very low in sugar, 100% whole grain and bursting with fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients and omega-3’s.

Watch the video below to see how my 8-year old son, Blake, made the chocolate walnut muffins all by himself!

This recipe lists coconut oil as an ingredient but the directions never mention it, aside from greasing the pan. I assume you mix it in with the wet ingredients...? Thanks.
