Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins



Oh man.  Guys.  These muffins are so yummy.  If you happen to be looking for a special weekend breakfast treat, then these Paleo Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins are for you.  

These muffins might just be the best dessert I've ever made.   And the recipe is so simple, mostly with ingredients you have around the house. But I cannot recommend more that you use a high quality unsweetened cocoa. It makes all the difference in the flavor.  

The crunch of the toasted hazelnuts pairs well with the deep chocolate flavor.  Hope you all enjoy!  --J
