History

I’m going to tell you a little story. Once upon a time, there were two children who loved the taste of mint chocolate. One day, their mummy Madame Labriski decided to surprise them with deliciously healthy muffins that tasted just like their favourite chocolate.

They were healthy because they contained no added refined sugar and the children devoured them, and everybody laughed and everybody smiled. Madame was very happy and so were the children. The end. Hahaha!

This recipe is from my cookbook Ces muffins dont tout le monde parle, gold award winner at the Taste Canada Awards, on page 36.
