Almond Cinnamon Mini Muffins with Dark Chocolate Chips & Choclate Almond Sauce

Image

I haven’t been feeling well at all for the last two days, so hubby was a little surprised when I went down to the kitchen and started experimenting around. The sweet man that he is, he tried to encourage me to just lay down and rest, but when my desire to cook was inextinguishable he stayed near me just in case. 🙂

What was I so excited to make? Muffins! I love muffins! Not just eating them (and I DO love eating them), but coming up with a new, creative idea for one! 🙂

These turned out great….loved them! Upset stomach and all….I ate 2! Hey, they were mini…. 😉
