  7. Let muffins cool for at least 10-15 minutes and enjoy!

 

Notes:

* Raw cacao powder is the same as cocoa powder but tends to be less processed and contains more nutrients, including iron, magnesium and antioxidants. If raw cacao powder is unavailable, unsweetened cocoa powder may also be used.
