chocolate chip coconut muffins // almond flour + walnuts

Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins // Almond Flour + Walnuts

It is finally feeling like Summer here in New Hampshire and I'm loving it! Aside from the massive amounts of black flies, mosquitoes and ticks it has been pretty awesome spending as much time outside as we possibly can. Our morning hikes have turned into a hiking and swatting session with creatively made head gear about  half way through the hike with whatever piece of clothing we can bear to lose. I am pretty certain we are going to invest in those crazy screened in hats or learn to outrun the bugs. Hopefully this bug season will be short lived - fingers + toes crossed!

In our efforts to clean up our diet a bit, Justin and I have been experimenting with new flours. I received a bag of Almond Flour from Now Foods and figured it was time to put it to use. Let me introduce you to a muffin that's packed full of all the good stuff and tastes like dessert.

Mini chips work best here but in a pinch you could chop up a chocolate bar or sub in larger chips. If chocolate isn't your thing in the am (who are you!?! do you even exist?) than leave them out or make them for an after work out afternoon snack.
