Vegan Choco-Citrus Muffins!


I'm so excited about these Vegan Chocolate Citrus Muffins I made today! ..

Dainty snowflake-covered trees and a chilly frost in the morning air meant I simply had to make vegan muffins! But this time I wanted to wake my husband up to the delightfully intoxicating aroma of citrus, melted chocolate and spice. I used sweet clementines instead of oranges to make these muffins sweetly sing.
