Yummy chocolate muffins loaded with chocolate chips & nuts.
I love muffins! I’ve been a little muffin happy lately, baking up some blueberry muffins and my new Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins. And while I really enjoyed both of these muffins, I was really craving some chocolate ones. Preferably chocolate ones, loaded with pecans!! So I baked up a batch of these muffins. They weren’t chunky enough for me the first time, so I can to adjust the recipe and add in more chocolate chips and pecans. You can use any nut you like, I just love to use pecans in baking!
