Angie, I first saw these amazing and tempting muffins on facebook...since I've made some changes on my facebook profile, and made some major changes of who to, or not to follow!
I was so impressed and inspired that you are sharing your posts on facebook, and also are in love with your fabulous and gorgeous yummy chocolate muffins. I love, the filling with the cream cheese, the use of the dark cocoa, and less sweetness; the coconut, flakes, the glaze...I must make this real soon...bookmarking it!

MunatyCooking 24/10/14 13:10

These are not only gorgeous but look so delicious! I want to try and bake them this weekend, I dedicate weekends to try my foodie friends' recipes :)
By the way, if you check my blog today, you'll find the same plate you used in your galette recipe earlier in my pics, seems like we shop at the same place ;)

grace 24/10/14 14:10

Kelly Mulcair Registered Nutritionist. Content © 2011 Trinity Nutrition. 25/10/14 19:15

Oh my gosh, these look amazing and what a great idea to grind the oats into flour. I digest oats well but many do not so this method not only renders the oats more versatile for baking it also breaks them down into a more digestible form. Love it.

Reeni 26/10/14 00:04

Wow - I'm drooling over these Angie! All that coconut filling looks absolutely divine! I want to take a BIG bite!

Sue/the view from great island 26/10/14 00:34
