Coconut Pecan Triple Chocolate Muffins ~ #MuffinMonday


Oh yes! TRIPLE chocolate!! When I opened the email from Anuradha declaring this week’s muffin to be triple chocolate muffins, I was immediately on board. Come on, triple chocolate…what’s not to like? For my spin I looked to see what I had on hand that could make these sinfully decadent muffins even better than they already sounded.

I happened to have a little bit of sweetened coconut and some pecans. My favorite kind of cake is German chocolate cake so this muffins definitely reminds me of that cake. The pecans add a great texture and nuttiness to these rich, chocolatey muffins while the coconut adds just the right touch and lends a little tropical flavor. Sink your teeth into these muffins and taste how the melted chocolate chips combine with the pecans and coconut for the perfect bite. But be warned, you may not be able to stop eating them. Truly, they’re that kind of muffin. Happy Monday!

Enjoy!
