Double Chocolate Chunk Whole Grain Avo-nana Muffins. I’ve made something very chocolate again and I won’t even try to make excuses today.

Double Chocolate Chunk Whole Grain Avo-nana Muffins I recently told you all in this post about how much I love to make healthy food for my sister who is expecting and how I love when she (or Baby) has specific cravings.

Very comical.
