Chocolate Orange Muffins

my current fave combo

Moist, rich chocolate and orange gooey muffins with a chocolate and orange almond butter filling. Sound good to you?

Yes i am still loving Pip and Nut Chocolate Orange Almond Butter so thought i’d add a dollop in each muffin to make them extra gooey (and yes a little messy to eat). Sainsbury’s currently have it on offer so run there IMMEDIATELY.

They’re super quick and easy to make and completely free from dairy and eggs, making them the ultimate compulsory vegan treat if you ask me.
