Lentils in muffins?!

Yes, chocolate + lentils in a muffin = delicious!

I literally couldn't get these off of the cooling rack before my kids were devouring them. They are high in protein, easy to make, and chocolatey - definitely a win for a snack in our home. 

Give them a try for yourself and find out!
