Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Muffin, for one.

This chocolate chip cinnamon muffin for one is whole wheat, vegan and refined sugar free, but still feels indulgent!

Chocolate Cinnamon Muffin Picture the scene: it is my first day on maternity leave, Kirk has left for work and I am alone, left to my own devices. It is cold and snowy, but I am all cozy inside my little cocoon. I want something special for breakfast, something warm and comforting, something to celebrate 9 long months of growing this babe. Only a baked good will do! A quick google search yields the perfect solution: a single serve muffin! Yodelay! A few small adaptions later and my chocolate chip cinnamon muffin for one was warm from the oven and ready to be devoured.

Ensure you get vegan chocolate chips if you want your muffin to be totally vegan!

You can also bake this muffin in the microwave: pour the batter into a ramekin and bake for 1-1.30 minutes on high. However, the consistency is nicer if you bake in the oven.

    Hi Emma, It was so nice to meet you last night. I only wish it wasn’t so loud in there so we could actually have a conversation! Maybe next time… Love the looks of these muffins, I think my kiddos would love them. Pinned! Enjoy that baby boy! XO Sheila
