Healthy Almond Butter Tahini Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins have won my dad over and I couldn’t count how many times he said, 
“Yum…” let’s just say too many to count. These were so easy to whip up and a great guilt-free dessert if you are having some late night cravings. 

The combination of tahini and chocolate is absolutely delicious. If you haven’t tried tahini…you are truly missing out. It is a great nut butter to go in sweet & savory dishes!
