we all survived another week. and to end this week off with a bang we got a delicious chocolate muffin recipe for you today.
we enjoyed these muffins while traveling a few weeks ago and forgot to share the recipe with you all. just getting around to organize all our recipes.
we know many of you may not have mesquite flour on hand. nor know what it is exactly. and that is ok. promise if you give it a try you will fall in love with it. and we provide substitutions for it.
mesquite it is a ‘flour’ that we just love. we have been enjoying mesquite for over 3 years now. and we are sure you have seen us use it in many recipes here on the blog.
we love mesquite for so many reasons but just to name a few contains fiber, lysine (an amino acid), and good for those watching their sugar. Plus mesquite has a great sweet, smoky flavor to it. similar to carob in a way.
