Dark Chocolate and Almond Butter Oatmeal Mini Muffins

These delicious mini muffins are irresistible. Dangerously irresistible. So much so that I could not wait another day to share the recipe with you for these decadent little bites.

This recipe makes for a nutritious pre-made breakfast or snack option for the week. But that’s not it, for my health conscious and food allergy-prone readers out there; they are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free. They might as well be calorie-free.

If you are looking at these and thinking they are self-indulgent calorie bombs, well, they are, but they are made with real, wholesome ingredients and without any added sugar.
