Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

You know I’ve written on many occasions how creativity has stood me up here and there—well, I’ve learned to deal with those pockets of time. But let me tell you, being plagued with sickness and tiredness is incapacitating and those around me are learning to deal with it. Forget creativity, simple everyday thoughts becomes a patch-worked effort. Nothing is seamless.

And sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. Lucky for me, Matt’s learned to translate my half thoughts. And Cole has finally forgiven me for getting his middle name wrong while I was explaining to him about how the baby’s middle name will be Grace like his is John—my bad, that is not his middle name (close but not quite).

See what I mean?

But I have some hope. See what I’ve baked here? Something chocolate. Something I’m usually never tired of, but for the past few weeks the smell of it has been nauseating. But look—double chocolate chip muffins. And I was able to eat a few.

This can mean only one thing—I’m coming out of the first trimester haze! Let’s celebrate with these chocolate muffins that my little guy declared as, “Super yummy, Nancy”. So while the little guy may have forgiven me, the little stinker won’t let me forget I got his name wrong.

    I love when I see “double chocolate” and “muffins” in the same recipe name. Any excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast works for me! ;)

    I fear the day I get Pregnancy Brain – I’m scatter brained enough as is it! And when the bad brain acts up, I like the keep it simple recipe plan – because there is never a bad time for double chocolate chip anything!

    This may sound crazy, but there is actually a huge gap in the number of convincing double-chocolate chip muffin recipes out there. I have been searching high and low for one that would do the bakery-style trick–glad your trimester’s kicking in enough to let you indulge this craving. Hope I can make it soon, too–want me to mail you some? Yum!

    These were so amazing! I had to convert them to be vegan but they worked out wonderful. I think these were pretty fool proof. Thank you so much for sharing! These were gone in two days in our household of 4. Mmm I did write my vegan version for vegans to make this recipe on my personal health blog and added a few links to your site so others can enjoy. Thank you so much again!
