Healthy Chocolate Pecan muffins with a hint of coffee

A few weeks ago I was still in the middle of all the Christmas craziness. I always have a lot of respect for people who can only eat a little of everything in December. Eating healthy for the entire day and then having one little treat in the evening. I always try to do the same, but I must say I am not very good at it. I more of a person who buys something and then eats the entire package within two days. I always end up eating a little bit too much in December and after Christmas and New Year, I am totally sick of eating unhealthy. With that in the back of my mind, I made these healthy chocolate pecan muffins.

I took the muffins to work with me as a healthy treat several times (so I could have some extra Christmas chocolate haha), but I also put a few of them in the freezer and I can still have those as a snack now. I have had enough chocolate for a while, but a healthy snack with a chocolate flavour is never wrong. The fact is that these healthy chocolate pecan muffins make a tasty light snack ánd they are easy to take with you on the go.
