Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffins (Gf & Vegan opt.)
These are the FLUFFIEST muffins with the most perfect taste & texture. I know I'm hyping them up a lot, but these are just so dang good and so simple!
I used to be absolutely obsessed with Reese's peanut butter cups when I was younger and they made me get such bad tummy aches, but once I found healthier alternatives (that actually tasted just as good & made me feel tons better!) I was HOOKED.
